A plant in Nyborg, Denmark will be the first under the agreement. The agreement also includes a long-term partnership between the companies and a mutual exclusivity agreement for the development and installation of waste tire recycling plants across Europe.

WindSpace has been working on the establishment of Elysium Nordic, a tire recycling project in Nyborg, Denmark since 2018. After an exhaustive search and thorough evaluation it decided to conclude the agreement with EWS. Both companies are delighted to see this partnership formalized. The partnership is a perfect match between the project development and execution capabilities of WindSpace and EWS’ technology and experience in recycling waste tires.

EWS has developed a proprietary system for processing rubber tires via a unique microwave technology that safely processes and recycles waste tires, while recovering highly valuable commodities, including reclaimed carbon black (rCB), steel, syn gas and oil.Each unit is designed to be environmentally safe, energy efficient, and economically profitable for the operator.

Commercialization of EWS’ Reverse Polymerization™ technology represents a momentous breakthrough in dealing with one of the world’s most stubborn waste problems in an environmentally friendly manner.

The first Elysium Nordic plant in Nyborg will be capable of processing 30,000 tons of end-of-life tires annually.

Jens Elton Andersen, CEO of WindSpace said, “We are very happy to enter the tire recycling business in partnership with EWS. We chose EWS after an exhaustive two-year search for the best available technology both from an economic and environmental perspective. We are looking forward to a long and successful partnership in Europe.”

Bob MacBean, EWS CEO said, “We are delighted to have WindSpace as our partners in Europe. This endorsement from a sophisticated and experienced group is an important milestone which confirms our belief that our technology is the best-in-class solution to the worldwide reclamation of waste rubber problem. The timing seems right for our long-term developmental efforts to be rewarded. We are currently in various stages of discussion with prospective customers or partners around the world, which underscores the global nature of the problem and the attractiveness of our solution.”

    Danish company will build one of the largest thermal decomposition plants in the port of Nyborg

    Every year, one million end-of-life tires get incinerated across EU countries instead of being recycled. However, the Danish company Elysium Nordic wants to address the issue by building one of the world's largest pyrolysis plant for recycling tires at Nyborg Harbor. The plant will be one of the first to be able to recycle the material carbon black, which is irreplaceable in the production of, among other things, tires, and other rubber-based materials. According to the plan, the plant will be completed in 2021, where it will employ around 30 employees.

    24,000 tons. That much CO2, an upcoming pyrolysis plant at Nyborg Harbor will save the atmosphere every year when it starts recycling used tires in 2021. This corresponds to emissions from the production of 1,237 tons of beef or 211 million kilometres in a new car.

    The reason for the large CO2 reduction is that the plant will be able to recycle 9,000 tons of carbon black from the 30,000 tons of tires it will handle per year. Carbon black is a black powder of carbon, which is mainly produced by oil. Depending on the process, somewhere between 1.5 and 2 kilos of oil is required to produce one kilo of carbon black. An oil consumption that can be avoided if carbon black is instead recycled from end-of-life car tires.

    “We want to help create a more circular and thus far more sustainable and financially reasonable approach handling end-of-life tires. With this plant, we have taken the first step,” says Jens Elton Andersen, CEO of WindSpace A / S, which is responsible for Elysium Nordic's recycling project.

    It is no coincidence that one of the world's largest pyrolysis plant will be located at Nyborg Harbor. Nyborg Harbor's central location offers several logistical advantages, where Elysium Nordic can have tires sailed right to the door and subsequently can easily transport the recycled materials to customers though the well-functioning infrastructureincluding the highway.

    “In recent years, ADP has attracted several new companies to the city, which have created growth and jobs. This means a lot to a city like Nyborg, and we are therefore pleased that we have succeeded in attracting Elysium Nordic through a great effort and advices,” says Rune D. Rasmussen

    The plant will cost about DKK 300 million to build, and when it will be completet in 2021, it will employ about 30 people. The mayor of Nyborg Municipality, Kenneth Muhs, is looking forward to more jobs that will be created, but he is just as pleased with Elysium Nordic's green profile.

    “Denmark has a goal of having a more circular economy, and therefore I am proud that we can get one of the companies that come with the technology of the future to settle right here. I see this as a cementing of our position as one of the most attractive municipalities in the country to start a business in,” says Kenneth Muhs.

    First information meeting in Nyborg

    We had the opportunity to meet our neighbors, journalists and municipality representatives, including members of the town council and the mayor Kenneth Muhs from Nyborg Kommune, who joined us to hear about our plans to install an innovative cleantech facility and bring new value from end-of-life tires to Nyborg.

    We were excited to share our plans for the project, our view on the importance of cleantech initiatives and circular economy, how we contribute to 4 different SDGs and how Elysium Nordic will help reducing CO2 emissions.

    The meeting was very interactive with many relevant questions and concerns from the neighbors, we had the opportunity to address. It is a top priority for Elysium Nordic also to have a positive impact in the local community.

    Elysium Nordic to present at Recovered Carbon Black conference in Berlin on the 22nd of May

    More than one million tons end-of-life tires are incinerated yearly across Europe representing a massive loss of value in the process. Elysium Nordic will provide a more sustainable solution to handle end-of-life tires by recovering the valuable carbon black and other materials.

    Learn how the experience from the renewable energy industry combined with new technologies will enable a circular approach to handling end-of-life tires along with providing the rubber goods and tire industry with recycled and less CO2-intensive carbon black for their products.
