Sustainable Carbon Black Workshop

This workshop will discuss different types of sustainable carbon blacks including circular carbon blacks (made from tire pyrolysis oil on a furnace process), renewable carbon blacks (made from pine oil on a furnace process), methane pyrolysis carbon blacks (made from methane and bio-methane by plasma-arc decomposition) and recovered carbon blacks (made from selected end-of-life-tires by pyrolysis and subsequent post-treatment).

A panel consisting of sustainable carbon black producers will each present their individual approaches to sustainable carbon blacks as well as discuss together about the topic. 

Date & Time
