NYBORG, Denmark—Renewable energy group Windspace and Scandinavian Enviro systems have established joint venture company Elysium Nordicm as part of its plan to set up a tire pyrolysis plant in Denmark for the recovery of carbon black, gas, steel and oil from end-of-life tires.
The companies, according to a June 12 statement, have applied for a building permit and environmental approvals with the City of Nyborg. The goal is to start the construction on the $46 million plant before the end of the year, Jens Elton Andersen, CEO of Windspace and Elysium Nordic, said in a statement.
The two companies unveiled their plans to build "one of the world's largest pyrolysis plants" in Denmark to recover carbon black, gas, steel and oil from end-of-life tires in February. The plant, the firms said at the time, will be able to recover more than 9,000 metric tons of carbon black from 30,000 tons of end-of-life tires on start-up in 2021.
