Green Distillation Technologies Corporation Limited is commercialising an innovative and disruptive Australian technology established in 2009 that recovers energy and useful solid products from end-of-life-tyres (ELTs). It has the potential to revolutionise the recycling of ELTs world-wide.
With a head office in Melbourne GDT operates a commercial module in Warren NSW. This is being scaled up to a full six module plant.
The GDT technology is known as “Destructive Distillation” and uses controlled heat to reduce whole tyres to their constituent elements within an oxygen free nitrogen environment, which then reform into oils which are distilled and collected. Carbon is the most abundant element in tyre rubber and is delivered up in powder form of high purity. Steel that is used in tyre manufacture is collected clean and unchanged. The process is entirely emission free.
A commercial scale plant consists of six modules and is capable of processing 19,000 tonnes of tyres per year. This represents approximately 3% of the ELTs produced in Australia annually. The plant at Warren currently has one these final six modules completed and in production
The GDT process is currently the only process available in Australia that remanufactures the rubber content of the ELT into a different energy form, and is still the only company worldwide offering the solution.
Young people are welcome.
