Waste to Value

Infinite Reuse of the World’s Rubber

A Linear Problem

Mass disposal of natural rubber, a scarce resource.
Big Tires

20 million tonne of virgin rubber is used annually to make new tires while 1 million tonne of mining tires reach their end

Old Tires

Typically, EOL tires are buried on the mine sites, causing operational challenges, environmental concerns, and safety hazards.

Fires

Results in heavy metals and carcinogenic chemical leaching and can cause uncontrollable fires.

A Circular Solution

CRT enables infinite reuse of the world's rubber.

Highest Quality Reclaim Product

CRT enables the reuse of rubber polymers in high grade applications and high performance products without adding chemicals to the original composition.

Cleanest Process

CRT has the cleanest and purist devulcanization process at a fraction of the cost and with a 80% lower CO2e footprint than virgin rubbers.

Tire for Tire

CRT works with several global tire manufacturers providing a sustainable alternative to virgin natural rubber so they can meet their sustainability goals, reduce GHG emissions and increase their % of circular material use.

Sustainable Prosperity

Innovation

CRT provides mining companies with a traceable and full service solution to one of their largest waste streams. Circular partners & suppliers are required to adhere to environmental and ethical standards. 

Regenerative Impact
