ABOUT GENAN

There is no other company like Genan. While aiming for sustainability and a greener planet, Genan is an innovative, high-end recycler of end-of-life tyres. Genan’s recycling technology was originally developed in 1990 and has undergone continuous development ever since. Genan employees are very proud to be part of the world’s largest recycling company processing end-of-life tyres from various vehicles.

What does Genan do?

Genan is a recycler of end-of-life tyres. Used tyres are cleaned, shredded and granulated, and the original components are separated for an output of approx. 75% rubber, 15% steel and 10% textile fibres. Rubber granulate, powder and pellets from Genan are uniform, upcycled quality products with fantastic product properties.

Where are Genan's factories located?

Apart from the Genan plant in Viborg, where group headquarters are located, Genan has three German factories in Oranienburg, Dorsten and Kammlach respectively, a factory in Ovar, Portugal, and one in Houston, Texas, USA.

How many tonnes of tyres can Genan recycle each year?

The combined processing capacity of Genan’s 6 factories totals more than 400,000 tonnes of tyres a year. The Texan plant is the largest factory of its kind in the world – with the capacity to recycle 100,000 tonnes of tyres annually.

THE UN GLOBAL COMPACT

The UN Global Compact is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative.
As a participating company of the UN Global Compact, Genan is committed to continuously strengthening its work with the Ten Principles of the Global Compact within human rights, labour rights, the environment and anti-corruption – as well as to contributing to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Why participate in the UN Global Compact?

Sustainability is Genan’s core value, and we are committed to striving for a sustainable future in every choice we make.
As the largest tyre recycler in the world, our vision is that all worn-down tyres should be recycled in the environmentally and economically most beneficial way.
Joining the UN Global Compact is a natural step in our quest to contribute to a greener tomorrow.

How does Genan implement the Ten Principles?

Genan is a responsible environmental company, and corporate social responsibility and integrity are  fundamentally implemented in our business ethics. The Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact are a central part of our CSR policy, and we comply with these principles in the operation of all group enterprises.

Which of the Sustainable Development Goals does Genan primarily focus on ?

Genan’s core business concept is mainly focused on the endeavours to reach goal no. 12 (to ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns) and goal no. 13 (to take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts).
