ReMould: Recycling End-of-Life Rubber Products

Smithers Rapra, a leading UK consortium of eight companies, will carry out research into the development of a novel, scalable, industrial process for the continuous production of high quality re-processable rubber compound, derived from end-of-life vulcanised rubbers (e.g. EPDM, Nitrile, and SBR). The project, called ReMould, will last for two years and is funded by the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) within its Sustainable Materials and Products programme. More than GBP 490k of direct financial assistance will be provided by the TSB, with the project partners contributing another GBP 490k between them.

ReMould builds upon the work undertaken within the TSB funded DevulCO2 project which successfully developed a continuous de-vulcanisation system for the production of de-vulcanised rubber from waste tyres. ReMould will increase the market available to the process by transferring the technology to other waste rubber products (e.g. EPDM automotive weatherstrip) and so expand the range of goods that can be manufactured from the de-vulcanised rubber.

The ReMould consortium comprises the original six DevulCO2 members, which are Smithers Rapra, PJH Partnership, Martins Rubber Company, BD Technical Polymer, J. Allcock & Sons, and Charles Lawrence International, with the addition of two new members Kingpin Tyres and London Metropolitan University.
