About 96% of the global carbon black production is manufactured by the furnace process, which has been optimised for yield and efficiency and across a variety of feedstocks including coal tar, ethylene bottoms and decant oil over a period of some 100 years. Tire OEMs and other users of carbon black are increasingly looking for alternative, more environmentally friendly material choices. Recovered carbon black can reduce the tire industry’s reliance on petrochemicals by replacing a portion of traditional carbon black with a sustainable and circular alternative without introducing performance trade-offs.
