Pallmann: Joint Venture with GMN
The German Pallmann Group, Zweibrücken, developer and producer of size reduction technologies, has formed a partnership with Spanish tire recycler GMN. Together, the two companies intend to develop, construct and sell complete plants for shredding and reprocessing vehicle tires.
Pallmann Group has been supplying GMN with tire shredding plants since 2004. The two companies have been working together to optimize costs per tonne, final product quality, and output rates. Rubber, steel and textile fractions are extracted and sorted from used car and truck tires, the separated materials are then profitably marketed for reprocessing into various applications. Against this background of extensive experience in plant construction, optimization and operation, the companies are now cooperating closely to come to the market under the Ecotrec banner. Ecotrec is a global provider of complete systems that encompass all modules necessary for recycling car and truck tires. These include shredders (Lion and Tiger units), granulators (Panther), and separators (Eco-Sep), as well as complete conveyor and control technology, including appropriate know-how. Initial focus will be on Europe and North America.
