Genan's objective is, in accordance with our vision, to process 10% of all scrap tyres in the world before the end of year 2020. In Western Europe and in the USA, operations will take place in 100% company owned and company operated plants. In the rest of the world, Genan is looking for turnkey partners, who have great knowledge about the local market and wish to invest in the world’s leading technology within tyre recycling.
Genan is thus looking for partners in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, South America and some countries in Eastern and South-East Europe (Russia, the Baltic countries, Ukraine, Belarus, the Balkan countries, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, and Turkey).
Genan will be prepared to participate in joint venture constructions with an ownership of up to 35%, provided that conditions regarding equity, service agreements, legislation etc. are fulfilled.
Cooperation with Genan does not only involve the construction of a ready-to-operate recycling plant. It gives access to more than 20 years of know-how about all aspects which are relevant for the operation and management of the business.
Maintenance service packages are offered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for a fixed fee per tonne of input. This will include the exchange of all wearing parts, knives etc. as well as regular service for the whole operation.
The cooperation with Genan does also include access to Genan’s customer network of global partners who purchase the rubber powder and granulate, the steel and the textile. Genan invests huge resources in the ongoing product development of high-value applications for the output, and our turnkey partners will naturally profit from this knowledge bank.

A recently published article in ”European Journal of Business and Management” advocates the use of LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) work in circular economy models (CEMs), e.g. carbon markets. CEMs are economical systems designed to minimize the industry’s impact on the biosphere as well as to ensure the optimal resource efficiency.
