Presentation

Characterization and valorification of pyrolysis oils for use in tires

As ESG mandates push companies to focus on renewable and recycled raw materials, interest and activity in pyrolysis oils have grown. By first defining the properties of pyrolysis oils derived from different materials and their technical efficacies, the challenges of incorporating pyrolysis oils into rubber and tire compounds are explored. Ergon will address ways to use these novel materials to produce polymers, process oils, or other additives dedicated to tire applications.
