Each year more than 2 billion tires reach the end of their life. Black Bear provides a circular solution for this waste stream by harvesting the valuable materials inside a tire. With each installation, Black Bear saves more carbon dioxide than 3 million trees consume.
Black Bear is an innovative tire recycler that produces recovered carbon black (rCB), oil and gas from waste tires. Almost everything that is black contains carbon black, which is currently produced by burning fossil fuels. It is a crucial component in rubbers, plastics, inks and paints. Black Bear plans to lead the transition to a sustainable solution for tires by rolling out hundreds of tire upcycling plants with local partners around the world.
