The last challenge

Genan’s vision clearly states that all end-of-life tyres must be recycled in the environmentally and economically most beneficial way. This means that all output from the recycling process should be used for high-value applications – and not incinerated.
At Genan, intense, ongoing product development is focused on identifying different alternative applications for the textile fibre fraction; – a fraction which accounts for 10% of the total output from Genan plants. Sustainability being the core value at Genan, we aim to ensure that the textile fraction is used for environment-friendly and economically beneficial purposes.
Textile fibres from end-of-life tyres have already proven to have excellent insulation properties compared to e.g. stone wool and mineral wool. Nevertheless, new product applications are still on the drawing board or in the test phase.
