We are an environmental technology company engaged in R&D and
production of innovative natural and synthetic rubber alternatives.
In 2014 we invented a new raw material called NGR - Next Generation Rubber.
NGR can replace up to 70% of natural & synthetic rubber of your product.
Cheaper, eco-friendly, and without any loss of quality!
NGR can be added to fresh rubber compound formulas decreasing the quantity of natural & synthetic rubber substance without loss of quality.
NGR can replace custom & specially engineered compounds in varying proportions, depending on the specification of the final compound.
The process is a mechanochemical reaction by nature, is such that it requires mechanical shear to expose fresh crumb surfaces so that the modifier reactant can effectively uncouple the sulphur cross links in the polymer chain.
Applied devulcanization process is based on the recognized effectiveness of several chemical reactions: free radical R• , organic cations R+ and acid / base A+ / B-.
The synergy between these reactions and tribologic effects in mechanical shear devices leads to the degree of devulcanization above 80% as determined by ASTM D 6814 standard.
The special equipment and technology allow us to obtain clean rubber crumb as an end product which does not contain any textile or steel wire.
In order to effectively uncouple the sulphur cross links in the polymer chain, the crumbs are going through mechano-chemical reaction with our patented devulcanizer.
Following the mechano-chemical reaction the obtained rubber can be re-used in manufacturing of PRODUCTS OF HIGH QUALITY RUBBER without degrading any of its properties.
DEVULCANIZATION LTD is focused on reduction of discrepancy between high growth in demand of rubber, low production from recycling industry and high volumes of accumulated rubber waste.
The increased demand in rubber tires results in the growth of waste rubber and stockpiles around the globe:
Next Generation Rubber technology helps to:
DEVULCANIZATION LTD team turns rubber recycling into a commercially viable and environmentally clean process.
Our innovative and experienced management team ensures sustainability and viability of the project.
In 2014 we finalized the construction of the first modern, highly automated pilot plant and laboratory in Riga, Latvia. The plant became a state of the art proof that the NGR ® technology works on industrial scale!
The pilot plant has a production capacity of 2500 t/year of NGR ® products and 250 t/year NGD ® de-vulcanizer.
Required investment depend on individual specifications of the licensee and initial assessment of needs i.e. production capacity, geographical exclusivity, level of automatisation of the plant etc.
Launching a plant with NGR® technology is an eco-friendly project which in some countries is subsidies by the government and additional financing is available through various programs, including from EC.
Exact calculation of required investments and overall costs is provided to potential licensees on demand.
