Innovation and impact

EcoTech’s patented technology is one of its kind both in the field of rubber recycling and in solid waste recycling in general.

EcoTech’s ability to use waste rubber/tires as a source material and restore it into a usable industrial commodity, at a cost far less than synthetic rubber materials, is unparalleled. This results in a recycling company that is profitable with no for subsidies that can introduce new business models to strengthen its own position and that of related markets.

Case Study

One example of how EcoTech rubber can be a disruptive force and introduce innovative business models is the case of producing rubber agricultural mats made 100% out of EcoTech rubber. This helps achieve:

  • Products as services – Today farmers buy mats and need to install them and 9 years later deal with their disposal. EcoTech will offer “Mats as a Service” whereby the mats are installed, maintained and recycled as part of an ongoing service business model.
  • Recycling 2.0 – the service model ensures the ongoing return of high quality used rubber by EcoTech technology to rejuvenate and restore the waste to a commodity as industrial rubber.
  • Next life materials and products – Used agricultural mats are restored into new mats for future use (after quality assurance), or, if degradation has occurred, are used to create other rubber applications with lower requirements, such as marine fenders.
  • Product Transformation – EcoTech Rubber derived from restored agricultural mats can be redeployed in new products such as ballast mats, marine fenders, etc.

There is no other company in the world that can:

  • Rejuvenate and restore waste rubber/tires into a high quality polymer equivalent to the existing synthetic so widely rubber used today
  • Facilitate the safe and clean disposal of the largest solid waste substance in the world: waste rubber/tires
  • Secure a constant supply of a needed raw material that is becoming more and more scarce

To emphasize, EcoTech’s contribution helps ensure employment and provision of old and new jobs and boosts the industry by the substantial economic savings generated due to the constant supply at low cost of an essential raw material.
