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.
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.
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.
