G³C Technology - An Innovative Waste to Wealth Technology

"Each year an estimated 1.7 billion tires reach the end of their lives, creating 18 million tons of waste to be disposed. The government has focused on disposing of these waste tires in an environmentally safe manner and the scrap tire industry has focused on getting the most out of waste, but we are committed to giving these "end-of-life tires" a life in a sustainable and beneficial way.

G3C Technologies Corporation                                                          

G³C - our Triple-Green Conversion Technology that gives New Life to End-of-Life tires

The number 3 In G³C represents three major environmental advantages of our technology:

  • G1: Our process does not generate any hazardous air pollution or waste discharge. All of the water used for the process is recycled so there is no waste water discharge. The G³C process’ carbon footprint is approximately 20% of that of a typical virgin carbon black manufacturing process from fossil oil or gas. 

  • G2: We do not use any fossil source material as feed for the process. Unlike the conventional carbon black manufacturing process that uses fossil oil or gas, the G³C process uses scrap tires as raw material.

  • G3: All the fuel and energy required for the process is self-generated so there is no need to use any fossil fuel for the system operation.

We have been developing and perfecting our G³C Technology to solve our world’s scrap tire problems by converting environmentally damaging waste tires into recovered carbon black, suitable for tire making and other high value applications.

Join us to make our world greener and wealthier by giving new life to the end-of-life tires. 

Note: “G³C Technology” is named after our registered trademark “GREEN³CONVERSION®” (G3C). No superscript is used in our company name “G3C Technologies Corporation” (G3CT) for simplicity.

Scrap Tires Disposal - a Monumental Problem for our World

An Enormous Number of End-of-Life Tires are Created Each Year

More than 1.76 billion new tires were produced globally in 2015 (Source: Notch Consulting, Inc.). Tires reach their end of useful life, becoming end-of-life (EOL) tires, in just three to six years (Sources: Edmunds.com, Tire Safety Group). Extrapolated out, these numbers suggest that at least 1.7 billion tires will become EOL tires by 2021.

The Improper Disposal of These End-of-Life of Tires is Affecting Human Lives

About 15% of EOL tires end up in landfills, resulting in serious soil deterioration (Source: 2018 Scrap Tire and Rubber Users Directory). Other disposal methods, such as mulching and paving with shredded tires, can contaminate soil and groundwater.

Even more severe environmental problems arise from tire incineration. This process not only releases NOx and SOx, the culprits behind acid rain, but the greenhouse gas CO2 is also generated. The incineration of one passenger car tire releases 22 kg of CO2, while each truck tire can generate 110 kg of CO2 (estimated based on: Rubber Manufactures Association – Scrap Tire Management Council and 2005 Report on Air Emissions from Waste Tire Burning in California).  Approximately 1.3 billion passenger tires and 0.4 billion truck tires are expected to reach their end of life by 2020 (Sources: Edmunds.com, Tire Safety Group and Notch Consulting, Inc.) which, assuming a conservative estimate that 25% of global EOL tires are incinerated, would produce over 18 million tons of CO2, the culprit of climate change.

Causes Air Pollution And...

Acid Rain

Carbon Black Production – A Must for Making New Tires, but the Culprit for Carbon Emission

New tires are made with virgin carbon black produced by incomplete combustion of fossil fuel. This process not only depletes the decreasing fossil resources of our earth, but also creates damaging air pollution.


For every kilogram of virgin carbon black produced, 2.37 kg of CO2 are emitted into the atmosphere (Source: Laura Kokko. Greenhouse gas emission from tyre production, M.Sc. Thesis, 2017). World production of virgin carbon black in 2018 is estimated to reach 12.8 million tons (Source: Notch Consulting, Inc.), which would result in 30.3 million tons of CO2 emissions.

             

G³C Technology – The Circular Economy Solution to the Problem

Converting Scrap Tires into Quality Carbon Black for Making New Tires

Our GREEN³ CONVERSION® TECHNOLOGY (G³C Technology), with its innovative system design and process control, surpasses all conventional technologies that produce recovered carbon black (rCB) from scrap tires.  

 

We have made significant progress in converting scrap tires into high-grade rCB for both tire carcass and tread. No other technologies have the potential to achieve such a result, as competitors are only capable of producing low-grade rCBs suitable for carcass only. 

 

This process would make the cycle "scrap tire -> carbon black -> new tire" complete by producing rCB for all parts of the tire. The G³C Cycle will be a perfect circular economy solution, for the environmental problems caused by both old tire disposal and new tire production.

Intellectual Property

G³C Technology is protected in the United States by a patent. In May 2017, USPTO awarded G3CT (formerly Long Arch Technologies Corporation) with US Patent number 9,663,662


G3C Technologies has filed national phase patent applications in India, China, Europe, and Canada. G3C Technologies has received a Notice of Allowance for its patent application with Canadian Patent Office.

G3CT owns a registered trademark GREEN³ CONVERSION®

G³C Technical Advantages

The most important technical advantage and distinguishing feature of the G³C technology is its ability to preset and control the grade of the rCB produced by changing process parameters via the process control system. Certified test reports demonstrate that the key properties (i.e., surface area and structure) of rCB produced by the G³C process meets or surpasses those of the most commonly used high-grade virgin carbon black (i.e., material to make brand new tires) and far exceeds those of rCB produced by other scrap tire conversion technologies. We believe these findings show that rCB produced by the G³C process has the potential to replace major virgin carbon black grades for various high-standard rubber, plastic, and specialty products, such as tire carcass (i.e., non-tread) and tire tread, plastic auto parts, inks, paints, and semi-conductive parts; many of these products can only be manufactured today using virgin carbon black. The G³C system also produces oil and gas as byproducts, allowing the process to fulfill its own energy needs and greatly reduce system operating costs.


  

G³C R&D Advantages

G3CT’s remarkable R&D achievements in developing G³C technology, accomplished within relatively short time and budget, are attributable to the performance of our outstanding US-Georgia R&D Team. Most of the scientific research and core system design work are conducted in the United States, and all lab experiments and equipment fabrication works are performed in Tbilisi (Republic of Georgia) by the Georgian R&D Team. G3CT tapped into the deep knowledge of Soviet-educated scientists and engineers, leveraged favorable labor cost structures, and favored by the friendly relationship between the United States and the Republic of Georgia.


Since July 2015, G3CT has been cooperating with Agladze Institute of Inorganic Chemistry and Electrochemistry (IICE) of the Tbilisi State University (TSU). The high caliber Georgian Team, access to numerous IICU R&D facilities, plus very close coordination with the U.S. R&D Team, greatly expedited the success of our R&D endeavors. All of the Georgian Team's R&D efforts are executed on a contractual basis, fully funded by G3CT, and 100% of the developed Intellectual Property is owned by G3CT, as per the IP agreement.

The Georgian Leadership Group consists of 4 people, including 2 doctors (BIOs shown in the Team section below).

The Georgian Experimentation Group consists of 6 people, including 1 doctor, 3 engineers, and 2 technicians.

The Georgian Chemical Research and Material Testing Group consists of 7 researchers and is focusing on rCB Enrichment, as well as on measuring rCB properties. The group includes 5 doctors and 2 chemical engineers.

The Georgian Engineering Group consists of 5 veteran engineers and technicians who designed and built the experimental devices per G3CT's proprietary specifications.

   

G³C Commercial Advantages

In addition to its technical superiority, our G³C technology offers significant commercial advantages:

  • Our potential ability to produce a wide range of high-grade rCB not only gives us market exclusivity of offerings, but also allows us to command higher prices on the market.
  • Low raw material cost makes the production cost of rCB lower than the cost of virgin carbon black production from fossil fuel.
  • The fee collected for disposing scrap tire (aka tipping fee) further enhances the profitability of the recovered carbon black business.
  • Unlike virgin carbon black, the cost of rCB manufacturing is not affected by the fluctuating price of crude oil.
  • The ever-increasing price of oil will be a strong driving force for the use of rCB in lieu of virgin carbon black.

Expert Opinion

"G3C Technologies have developed a unique thermolysis & refining process which converts mixed end-of-life tire feedstock into gas, oil, and high-grade recovered carbon black. Carbon char produced by G3C thermolysis is refined to a higher surface area and structure. Then it is enriched in carbon by lowering its ash content. The result is a recovered carbon black with higher structure and higher surface area than even the carbon blacks used in the waste tire feedstock. We believe this technology will open new markets which are currently not accessible for other commercial grades of recovered carbon black, for example conductive applications. I think highly of this technology and the team behind it. I also am very much looking forward to seeing first in-application results.”

Martin von Wolfersdorff

“First evaluations of G3C recovered carbon black are quite promising. Implied surface area measured with standard ASTM tests indicate an enhanced surface structure which can lead to high performance in rubber products. Indeed most recovered carbon blacks (rCB) evaluated have performance very similar to carcass grade carbon black (i.e. N550 grades). G3CT data indicate their rCB may perform as well as tread grade CB’s (i.e. N120, N234) which in turn would promise much higher product and economic value than currently commercial pyrolysis-based rCB’s. G3CT should be watched closely for further developments and exploitation of this potential.”

Competition

The rCB market is new and the potential is great.  There are a few competitors in the low-grade rCB market, but there is no current competition in the high-grade rCB market yet. 

Three Technology Generations

Generation 1 - Until the turn of the century, the traditional pyrolysis process had been used to convert scrap tires into steel, fluff, char, oil, and gas (no rCB). Those pyrolysis systems were designed primarily to produce oils as a result of the high oil prices during the 1980s and 1990s. Many such systems are still in operation, mostly in Asian countries. These systems represent the most primitive Generation 1 Tire Conversion Technologies.

Generation 2 - In recent years, a new generation of tire pyrolysis was developed for the production of rCB in addition to oil and gas.  Due to technical limitations, the rCB produced is only suitable for tire carcass, gaskets, hoses, and belts, but NOT for highway tire tread or conductive applications. These systems represent the Generation 2 Tire Conversion Technologies.


The two major properties of carbon black are surface area (N2SA, aka BET, ranges from 30 to 400+ m2/g, the higher the better) and structure (OAN, ranges from 30 to 180+ ml/100g, the higher the better). As shown in the chart on the right, the surface area and structure of the Generation 2 rCB are below 100 m2/g and 125 ml/100g, respectively. The Generation 2  rCB usage is limited to lower performance applications.

Generation 3 - The emerging Generation 3 Tire Conversion Technology has the potential of producing rCB that can replace virtually all virgin CB grades and is suitable for the most demanding applications, such as tire treads for highway vehicle and semi-conductive cable coating. 


The Generation 3 technologies have the potential to produce rCB with main properties, i.e., surface area and structure, well above those of the rCB produced by the Generation 2 technologies. As shown in the chart on the right, the Generation 3 rCB covers the entire range of the commercially used carbon blacks.


This chart includes a series of G3C Conductive Grades, which were produced by the G³C Conversion Process. These grades feature particularly high surface area property values.

Based on published data, our G³C technology is the first and only implementation of the Generation 3 Tire Conversion Technology -  This conclusion is supported by the test report issued by Sid Richardson, an ASTM certified lab, for an rCB Sample produced with the G³C Conversion Process. The report verifies G³C tire conversion technology’s ability to produce rCB with high surface area (N2SA, aka BET = 358.2 m²/g) and high structure (OAN = 129.4 ml/100g), which is not possible with the Generation 2 technologies.


This report also proved another capability of our technology - G³C Enrichment Process is capable of reducing impurities in the rCB (i.e., ash and sulfur) down to less than 0.5%. This result represents a far more advanced purity than any other known rCB purification results.

Note: ASTM is the international standard body for testing and materials;  Sid Richardson was acquired by Tokai Carbon Co and operates under that name now; Long Arc Technologies Corp. is the former name of G3CT.

Tire-making Carbon Black

We believe G3CT is well positioned to develop a wide range of Generation 3 rCB products for tire making, including rCB for highway tire tread and tire conductivity additive, which cannot be made by any of the Generation 1 and 2 rCB producers. Tires need to be conductive to ensure vehicle grounding, in order to prevent possible shock of driver and passengers by static electricity or lightening.

Specialty Conductive Carbon Black

As far as we know, G³C technology is the only Generation 3 scrap tire to rCB technology that can produce highly-conductive and high-purity rCB. This type of rCB has the potential to be well-suited for a number of semi-conductive applications. In this market, G³C technology is expected to enjoy a monopoly for the foreseeable future.

G³C Advantages over Virgin Carbon Black Producers

  • “Green” tires are preferred by the general consumers.
  • Governments of developed countries promote and support scrap tire recovery with monetary assistance and/or favorable accommodations (Sources: US EPA; Rubber & Plastic News, Scrap tire management rules vary across world, Jan 20, 2015).
  • Elimination of environmental damage by both virgin carbon black production and improper tire disposal.
  • The lower production cost of rCB provides for good sale price advantages (generally about 80% of the price of virgin carbon black) and ensures market viability.

The G³C New and Exclusive Market

G³C technology, as the first and only Generation 3 tire to rCB technology to our knowledge, is poised to implement a "blue ocean" strategy, creating and occupying three NEW and EXCLUSIVE rCB market segments.

NEW and EXCLUSIVE Market Segment 1: High-Grade Carbon Black for Highway Tire Tread

  • Total Conductive Grades ~14% or 100,000 tons

  • Average price > $4,000 per tons


Market Segment Size > $400,000,000

Total addressable market for G³C is 12+ million tons, $17+ billion per year

NEW and EXCLUSIVE addressable market for G³C is 4+ million tons, $5+ billion per year

Note: Notch Consulting, Inc. was used as a main source of the market data. Other numbers were obtained from publicly available sources. However, some missing numbers were extrapolated and estimated based on the available data. Therefore, please treat all numbers provided above as just estimations for illustration purposes only. They provide the order of magnitude but may not be exact or accurate. Please do not base your investments decisions on these numbers.



Our Roadmap to Success

Market Entry

In order to stake out the new and exclusive rCB market segments, several dozen G³C tire conversion plants will have to be built around the world. To start our long journey of saving the world from the scrap tire disaster, our first step will be to team up with governments, enterprises, project developers, and venture capitalists all around the world to build the first G³C plants in their respective regions. Due to the very favorable operating income, once the first G³C plant is in operation, more new and bigger capacity plants will follow.


Example: We project that for a plant that processes 240 tons of scrap tire per day, the yearly income is estimated at $17 million and the capital costs of $60 million can be recovered in less than four years.  


G3CT revenue during this stage will consist of a technology usage fees, sale of proprietary G³C equipment, and a share of the annual income of the plants. With a successful market entry, which will take one to two years, we can proceed to build our worldwide network of build-own-and-operate G³C plants to meet the huge and increasing demand.

Present Focus & Current Stage of Development

The G³C Technology process R&D phase was concluded in early 2018 and we have since been making progress on the technology commercialization (building a G³C pilot production line) and product R&D (rCB products development for specific high-demand applications, such as tires, high performance rubber products, semi-conductive applications, etc.). We are building a bright future on a strong and firm foundation, and we do need solid building blocks. The funds raised from this campaign will be used to accelerate our current effort of technology commercialization, new rCB product development, and business development.

Long-Term Trajectory

The chart below illustrates our very conservative projection of G3CT addressable market penetration percentage for the next 15 years. The growth rates for the market and for the G3CT business are incorporated in the projection. Considering huge addressable market size (currently $17+ billion), even the conservatively projected market penetration (about 0.4% in 15 years) would represent $680+ million annual target market.

Please note that the above chart is for illustration purposes only. It provides the feel of the order of magnitude for the market penetration. The numbers used in these charts may not be accurate and do not represent a reliable financial forecast. Please do not base your investment decisions on this chart.

Market Traction

After in-depth discussions about critical environmental dangers of the scrap tire situation in the Republic of Georgia and prospect of developing commercial tire processing in the country, the Georgian Government issued a letter of support for building a Tire Conversion plant in the free industrial zone. We are having ongoing discussions/negotiations with a number of project developers and capital investors around the world, and we have received letters of intent from several companies in Europe and Asia.


Invest in G3C Technologies

We believe our world is facing a scrap tire disposal crisis and is urgently in need of an all-encompassing solution. Our solution includes the following four steps:

 

  • We'll design, build and test a Pilot G³C Production Line for conversion of scrap tires to rCB and develop a portfolio of high market demand rCB products. 

  • Retrofit G³C equipment into existing scrap tires processing plants. 

  • Offer a Turn-Key plant system to augment existing or build new tire conversion plants. 

  • Establish worldwide Build Own & Operate (BOO) plant network to capture a large portion of the world market.

Join us on this exciting endeavor to save the environment by turning waste to wealth!

G3C Technologies to present its technology at the Recovered Carbon Black congress in Berlin

1 day ago

Dr. Vitaly Khusidman, the Founder and CEO of G3C Technologies Corporation (G3CT) will present our unique G3C technology at the Recovered Carbon Black congress in Berlin on May 21, 2019 (see 4:30 PM session). This forum is attended by major world players in the recovered carbon black industry. These companies using either Generation 1 (Oil recovery) or Generation 2 (Carbon black recovery) technologies. G3CT is the only known Generation 3 technology company, which not only recovers, but also upgrades carbon black built into tires. G3C technology allows to convert tires to carbon black of much higher grade and greater market value. This represents a unique differentiation of G3CT product on the market, which is not attainable by any existing technology. It is expected that rCB production companies around the world will recognize advantages of the Generation 3 G3C technology and will adopt them for their operations once G3CT finalizes the commercialization effort.

Test results verified that G3C process upgrades carbon black captured in scrap tires

3 months ago

Summary

New lab test result shows the carbon black produced by the G3C process possess properties better than the virgin carbon black existing in the scrap tires.  This proves that our G3C technology is much superior than the traditional pyrolysis technology in terms of the quality of the carbon black product. 

There are various grades of carbon black (high grades and low grades) used in the production of new tires (and remains in the scrap tires).  The traditional pyrolysis process recovers the carbon black from the scrap tire as it is (both high grades and low grades same as that used in new tire making), whereas our G3C process converts the carbon black (high grades and low grades) in the scrap tire into higher grades of carbon black.  This capability uniquely positions G3C on the market and provides access to new and exclusive market segments.

The Problem and the Solution

Problem: Recovered carbon black produced by all existing pyrolysis-based technologies are not well suited for building new tires due to too wide particle size distribution (i.e. too many carbon black grades are involved in making each tire part).

Solution: G3C technology is the new and only solution for the recovered carbon black problem – With its ability to upgrade the carbon black recovered from the tires, our G3C technology can make particle size distribution more compact and, thus, render it suitable for new tire making.

Explanation

  • Different tire parts tires are built using different grades of carbon black in order to achieve required performance characteristics (see carbon black grades N110, N234, N326, N330, N347, N375, N339, N660, N772 and N774 in the diagram below). Each grade has very narrow particle size distribution measured in nanometers (nm); Note: 1 micron contains 1,000 nm; 1 mm contains 1,000 microns.

  • When scrap tires are shredded before processing all tire parts are mixed in the process input material.
  • A pyrolysis process output contains a mix of different grades that exist in different parts of the tire – it effectively constitutes a mix of different carbon blacks with very wide ranges of particle size distribution. Such wide distribution is proved to be very difficult to use for new tires making, therefore, a significant amount of virgin carbon black needs to be supplemented (less amount of virgin carbon black can be substituted).
  • In contrast, the output of G3C process has more compact particle size distribution, which makes it suitable for making specific parts of new tires.
  • The histograms below represent particle size distributions for G3CT supplied pyrolysis and G3C recovered carbon black made from the same feedstock are built by ARDL (www.ardl.com) based on Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) analysis.

  • The G3C recovered carbon black particle size distribution is more compact and shifted left (towards the smaller particle sizes/higher quality material), which makes it suitable for building tire parts (providing that other conditions are satisfied).
  • This TEM-based analysis provides a material prove that G3C process upgrades carbon black captured in tires, which was not possible to achieve for any existing technologies.

Answers to key questions

4 months ago

Many thanks to Mr. Justin Wehrli for raising a number of questions that are important for all to know the answer:


Q1: What is your plan to bring G3C Recovered Carbon Black (grCB) to market

A1: There are two major avenues for us to bring our grCB to the market: 1. Production and marketing of grCB by a local entity, that can be a local licensee or a local joint venture company (G3CT is in the process of establishing joint venture with Hanyn Engineering, see the update “G3C Technologies to enter the China market”).  This is a sure and viable market entry for G3CT during our initial operation when we are not capable of funding our own Build-Own-and-Operate (BOO) plants.  2. As soon as we are further financially established and are capable of funding such BOO plants, we will start to produce and market our grCB independently. We will eventually establish a chain of G3CT BOO plants around the world and occupy a significant portion of the world’s waste tire to recovered carbon black market.  


Q2: How to obtain a sufficient supply of tires for manufacturing input?

A2: By 2022 approximately 1.7 billion tires will be disposed annually.  These scrap tires are mostly incinerated, ground or shredded for road construction and playground paving (note: less than 0.5% are pyrolyzed to produce oil and low-grade carbon black, the highest value achievable by the current scrap tire processes). The value derived from such applications ranges from $15 to $100 for each ton of scrap tire processed.  This is no comparison to the value that can be generated with our G³C technology: $300+ worth of high-quality carbon black from each ton of scrap tire processed.  The much higher economic benefit is the foundation of our business viability, and the assurance that we will be able to obtain a sufficient supply of scrap tires for our process input.


Q3: How do you conduct operation and sales?

A3: Our current emphasis and the purpose of the funding campaign is to complete our technology commercialization and product development effort.  Upon completion of the current phase we will commence our commercial operation and will add more staffs for sales and project execution. Presently, all the key US staffs are working on multiple assignments and on “multiple shifts” (this is a must due to the intensive communication with business associates in Europe and Asia).  Working from home offices gives them the most flexibility and best productivity.


Q4: How did you select your patent coverage?

A4: Since it would be very costly and time consuming to apply for patents in all countries in the world, we have decided to apply for license only in the key regions that high business potential for G3CT, such as, United States, EU, Canada, China and India. Other regions such as Republic of Georgia is not currently covered by patents (although our R&D base is in Georgia, we chose not to apply for patent in Georgia for now due to its low market potential). The total scrap tire production of the above mentioned key regions is approximately 200 billion tons per year, representing more than 80% of the world scrap tire production (source: Global ELT Management – A global state of knowledge on collection rates, recovery routes, and management methods, World Business Council for Sustainable Development, January 2018).

Technology commercialization: Successful operational and performance testing of G3C Pilot Reactor

4 months ago

Our Georgian R&D team has successfully conducted operational and performance testing of the Pilot G³C Vertical Reactor, which was designed and built as a prototype of a commercial unit. Numerous series of tests showed that the pilot reactor can sustain steady and efficient operation, and is ready to be scaled up to a full-size unit. The initial performance test result shows that the quality of the carbon black produced by the pilot reactor matches that previously produced by the lab unit. We are confident that with our continued effort in process optimization we can further improve the performance.

The international standard organization (www.astm.org) defines standard classification of carbon black grades (standard ASTM D1765 – see below) by assigning them to 10 groups: Group 0 being the highest grade and highest price, and Group 9, the lowest grade and lowest price carbon black. For example, the current market prices average at $1,785 per ton for the carbon black grade N110 (belongs to Group 1) and $1,314 for the carbon black grade N772 (belongs to Group 7) – source: Notch Consulting, Inc. The higher grades are not only commanding higher price – they represent large markets (e.g. tire tread making carbon black) which require enhanced properties of the product.

The performance test result (refer to measurements marked with numbers 1 and 2 in the report below) shows that the carbon black produced by the pilot unit meets the requirements for the group 1 and is very close to the group 0, the highest grades that command the highest price. The ability to produce such high-grade carbon black from scrap tire is unprecedented and is opening new markets for the industry. As of now there are no known results that match higher than Group 3 in the entire recovered carbon black industry.


This success verified the proper design and performance of the scaled-up reactor, and proved that the reactor can be further scaled up without sacrificing quality of the product. With your continued support we will use this reactor to develop a portfolio of high demand carbon blacks.

A new U.S. Government Report on Climate Change Reaffirmed G3CT’s Mission

6 months ago

On November 23rd the U.S. Government released a major report on climate change, one that emphasizes the dire threat that human-caused climate change poses to the U.S. and its citizens. The report says the economy could lose hundreds of billions of dollars — or, in the worst-case scenario, more than 10% of its GDP — by the end of the century.    

https://www.cnn.com/2018/11/23/health/climate-change-report-bn/index.html

http://fortune.com/2018/11/24/climate-change-report-economy/         

This report is the second of two volumes. The first, released in November 2017, concluded that there is “no convincing alternative explanation” for the changing climate other than “human activities, especially emissions of greenhouse gases.”  CO2, accounted for 75% of the manmade greenhouse gas, is the major culprit for the climate change.



Each year, over 48 million tons of CO2 is emitted into our atmosphere as a result of old tire disposal and new tire production.  G3CT’s mission is to substantially reduce such damaging CO2 emission by perfecting the circular economy (making new tires with recovered carbon black recovered from scrap tires) with our innovative G3C Technology. We believe this alarming report, and the increased awareness of the urgency, will help rally the support for our effort.

What Happens to All the Tire Components in the G³C Process?

6 months ago

A modern tire is a very complex product. It consists of multiple layered components.


Source: https://www.michelinman.com/US/en/help/how-is-a-tire-made.html)

The raw materials used for tire production are: rubber (~50%), carbon black (~25%), textile (~5%), ZnO (~2%), sulfur (~1.5%), and steel belts and mesh (~15%). On elemental level a tire consists of the following chemical elements: about 76% carbon (C), 15% steel and Silica (Si), sulfur (S), and metals (Zn, Cu, Al, etc.).

Source: Dr. C. Gisele Jung and Ir. Jean-Paul Bouysset  - Recovered Carbon Black from Tyre Pyrolysis. European Tyre Recycling Association, DEPTEC Life project November 2015 (https://docplayer.net/60487355-Recovered-carbon-black-from-tyre-pyrolysis.html).

Note: “tyre” is the British term for tire.

The feedstock for our patented G³C process is crumbed tire material which a result of tires shredded and grinded after removal of steel and textile. Crumbed tire generally weights about 80%+ of the source scrap tire. Depending on the desired product rCB grade, the output of our G³C process contains 25% to 40% of recovered Carbon Black (rCB, the quantity is lower for higher-grade rCB production, and higher for lower-grade rCB production) and 75% to 60% of oil and gas. The oil and gas are more than sufficient for internal energy needs, and the surplus can be sold for additional income or used for in-plant power production.

The silica, sulfur and metals contained in the scrap tire end up in the rCB as inorganic impurities. Such impurities need to be removed to a certain level to meet the specific rCB application requirements. For certain application, such as tires, impurities removal is minimal re not needed at all, other applications require thorough cleaning of the rCB from impurities Our proprietary G³C Enrichment technology was developed for selective removal of impurities in order to meet specific rCB application requirements.

Recently silica is increasingly used, especially in passenger tires. The diagram below shows increasing silica usage by the tire industry.

Source: Notch Consulting, Inc. report “Outlook for Reinforcing Fillers & Rubber Chemicals, Tire Technology Expo, 2018".

Our G³C Enrichment process can effectively remove the high silica content from rCB to meet the high purity requirements for semi-conductive applications (e.g. <0.5%).  G³C purification capability opens new markets for the rCB industry.

Quote from http://chesterenergyandpolicy.com/blog/- “The concept of creating rCB from tires is not a new one, but G3C Technologies claims their R&D has enabled them to elevate this process to a never-before-seen level. Unlike any other conversion process, the G3C technology can supposedly produce rCB with properties (such as surface area and structure) that far surpass those of previous iterations of rCB and even of comparable quality to virgin carbon black. Such high-grade rCB would, for the first time, allow manufacturers to replace virgin carbon black used for high-standard rubber, plastic, and specialty products with rCB, since previous versions were too low-grade. “
