Pyrolysis technology enables ‘closed loop’ solutions in push for circular economy

Krzysztof Wróblewski explores how this thermochemical technique for recovering raw materials from waste can be used to recycle end-of-life tyres

The automotive industry needs transformative change in its technology solutions. It has made progress producing zero-emission electric vehicles by reducing the carbon footprint on the user-end, but the manufacturing process still has a significant environmental impact. From the plant’s electricity consumption to the various materials in the car’s production, the automotive industry has startling statistics.

According to The Guardian , a compact car will produce around 6 tonnes of CO2e during its production lifecycle. And a university publication concluded that the largest share of global greenhouse gas emissions comes from energy consumption (73.2%), where the industrial sector is a major contributor.

Technology is the answer. Pyrolysis can help in closing the loop to make the automotive sector circular, reducing its environmental impact during car production. Benefits of joining the circular economy

Employing circular methods would allow the automotive industry to reduce vehicle lifecycle carbon emissions by up to 75% and resource use by up to 80% per passenger-km by 2030 for an electric car, according to a World Economic Forum report from Accenture. Closing the loop will also reduce the industry’s ecological […]
