Bridgestone Revolutionize Tyre Manufacturing By Using Recycled Carbon Black

Bridgestone Americas Inc. has begun first at-scale use of recycled carbon black(rCB) in the tyre production, beginning with its agricultural tyre plant in Des Moines, the company said in a release. Bridgestone has a long-standing partnership with Delta Energy Group, L.L.C and is using Delta-Energy’s proprietary product, D-E Black, as its sole source or rCB in Des Moines, Bridgestone said.

D-E Black, like all rCBs, is recovered from scrap tyre and retains a structure similar to that of virgin carbon black, allowing it to be used as a partial replacement for virgin black in tyres, said the tyre maker.

“Bridgestone Group is deeply committed to advancing an environmentally sustainable society by supporting a truly circular economy,” said Nizar Trigui, chief technology officer, Bridgestone Americas, Inc. “Through this partnership with Delta-Energy Group, we hope to shape the future of our industry and ensure efficient mobility solutions for generations to come.”

This move from the tyre maker marks a significant milestone in achieving Bridgestone Group’s long-term environmental vision of targeting 100% sustainable materials – and contributing to a reduction of over 50% CO2 emissions – by the year 2050 and beyond. The process by Delta-Energy Group to extract materials produces 81% less COper ton as compared to virgin carbon black (vCB).

“Important partnerships like this significantly accelerate innovative solutions to address the technical, economic and environmental needs of sustainable development initiatives,” said Bob Genovese, Delta-Energy CEO. “Bridgestone has been an invaluable partner from the beginning, and we are proud to be able to support them, and the tire industry as a whole, endeavours moving toward a more circular economy with D-E Black. Delta-Energy has plans to build several more plants in North America over the next few years capable of processing D-E Black for new tires and other rubber product industries.”
