Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada - Klean Industries Inc. announced that one of its flagship facilities has now been awarded the prestigious Cradle to Cradle Certification among many other international accreditations and certifications. From day one, the Klean Team has strived towards a fully ecological production cycle as part of its values, vision and mission statements. Having one of Klean's reference facilities awarded and certified Cradle to Cradle by McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry LLC is another approach which is differentiating the company from the competition and supports its customer's own vision to supply sustainable products to their product purchasers, partners and client base while creating a circular economy, with reduced environmental costs and risks. MBDC is a leading environmental consulting firm focused on helping companies implement new approaches to sustainability and prosperity. This certification comes after a twelve-month study of the production process and the end use of the recycled carbon and oil products. In recent years, there has been a change in product consumers' knowledge and their need to understand a product's supply chain, from raw materials acquisition to the production process and lifecycle analysis, including what impact each has on the natural ecology of the planet. Public health issues and a growing emphasis on environmental protection are now key decision factors when it comes to consumer's choice of product, and that should be no different for vehicle tires. People are learning that every dollar they spend on a product is, in fact, a vote for change, and evidence of this is now being seen in the global marketplace, which is driving the demand for greener products and more environmentally friendly production methods. This additional certification further reinforces that the products are sustainably manufactured and can be fully integrated with many traditional manufactures of rubber, plastic, ink, carbon and new tires, assuring that the products offer not only a significant cost advantage, but also a sustainability advantage second to none. No other products from a tire pyrolysis process offer the assurance to the customer to this extent. Beyond Klean's extensive experience in pyrolysis technologies, what sets them apart from all tire pyrolysis technologies is the ability to convert the tire char into valuable end products with well established end users in a multitude of product applications. This is accomplished using proprietary technologies that produce a recovered carbon black to a standard unseen by any other technology providers, hence their commercial success. As far as the company is aware, the Klean Team is currently the only group re-integrating recovered carbon black in new tires with major tire manufacturers around the globe, a truly advantageous sustainable application given the manufacturing of tires consumes approximately 65 percent of the global carbon black production. "We are extremely pleased that beyond the traditional certifications, our team has exceeded all expectations and has achieved the highest environmental standard for the quality of products produced from any tire pyrolysis facility on the planet today. Not only do we have the largest facilities in operation globally, our fully commercialized technology does what no other technology can. To our knowledge, we are the only technology provider that comes with full performance guarantees and exclusive EPC relationships in place for deployment of any project, anywhere on the planet. Additionally, our certifications and product quality enable us to provide full product buy back guarantees as the demand for our recovered carbon 'rCB' and renewable fuel oil exceeds our current global production capacity, by many times over. In our analysis, we see recovered carbon 'rCB' market conservatively exceeding 100,000 metric tons by 2020 and that's just in new tire related applications," stated Jesse Klinkhamer, CEO of Klean Industries.
