BOULDER, Colo.—Boulder-based Waste to Energy Partners, a waste conversion company that specializes in converting end-of-life tires into carbon black, has changed its name to Bolder Industries, effective immediately.
The new name emphasizes Bolder's core mission of converting solid waste into energy-rich materials and diverting significant amounts of solid waste from landfills, the company said in a statement.
Along with the name change, Bolder will open a first-of-its-kind facility, Marysville Carbon Solutions, in Marysville, Mo., the company said.
The grand opening of the MCS plant was scheduled for Feb. 3, according to Jessica Hogan, Bolder director of marketing.
The 24,000-sq.-ft. MCS plant will add at least 15 employees to Bolder's work force, according to the company.
"MCS operates a net energy-positive facility that is 90 percent more efficient in terms of water and electricity consumption than commercial alternatives and diverts nearly 50 million pounds of waste from entering our landfills each year," according to Bolder's website.
The main product at MCS will be Bolder Black, Bolder's closed-loop alternative to traditional carbon black, the company said.
