In beginning May 2014, the official Grand Opening of Genan’s 100,000 tonne tyre recycling facility will take place. The factory is the largest of its kind in the world, boasting a capacity equivalent to almost 2.5 times the total amount of tyres annually scrapped in Denmark, where the first Genan factory was built. The Houston plant represents an investment of more than USD 140 million, has been operational since the middle of 2013 and employs approx. 60 full-time staff members.
The world’s largest tyre recycling facility, Genan, is currently setting up in the French market, having decided to build a large tyre recycling plant north of Toulouse, with an annual processing capacity of 70,000 tonnes. The plant represents a EUR 56 million investment, entailing the creation of 35-40 new jobs. As early as 1 April 2014, a staff of 8 will be employed.
