Event Overview

"The first important congress on recovered carbon black"

Following last year's hugely successful launch , the Recovered Carbon Black Congress will return to Europe in 2020.

Recovered Carbon Black has been designed as a forum for experts and innovators, who research, develop and commercialise recovered carbon black. Recovered carbon black can be attributed to 5% of the global 1.25 billion market and is driven by end user needs and consumer demands for sustainable alternatives to tackle the ever growing problem of unused tyres. 

With recycling and sustainability headlining in the news, recovered carbon has ever growing market opportunities including reduction of CO2 foot prints to carbon black, cost reduction to carbon black and less volatility and performance benefits over carbon black grades. 

From 12-14 May 2020, delegates will again hear from leading industry experts as they provide a 360 degree perspective of the market. Carbon black producers will share their challenges via in-depth case studies; vendors and technology providers will discuss industry trends and technology platforms; and end users will offer their views on recovered carbon black and their future vision on sustainability.

In addition to a comprehensive learning experience, the Recovered Carbon Black conference provides an excellent networking environment, allowing delegates to meet and connect across all breaks and at an exclusive drinks reception. 

Key themes and topics to be covered at Recovered Carbon Black 2020

The 2020 conference will take an in-depth look at the opportunities and challenges currently having an impact on the market. Sessions will focus on the following topics:

  • rCB supply - key observations from major suppliers on supply & demand and the obstacles to overcome.
  • rCB demand - what is needed to change perception and increase confidence to switch to rCB?
  • Economic viability, pricing and capacity - production and total cost overviews of different rCB processes
  • Is recovered carbon black complementary or competitive to virgin carbon black? The technical and commercial implications
  • Product performance and quality - comparing the impact of different recycling processes on performance and quality
  • How sustainable is rCB? Lifecycle analysis of rCB versus vCB and other recycling technologies
  • The impact of the EU circular economy and wider regulatory environment - legislative factors that might incentivise or impede the use of rCB
