WE ARE ARDURO
Our journey began ten years ago with a mission to tackle the challenge of recycling end-of-life tires and waste rubber back into their original raw materials, without sacrificing quality or increasing costs. Our story started with a university research project studying the aging of elastomeric materials used in the water utility industry. Noticing rubber components were degrading much faster than they should be inspired the idea of whether the rapid degradation mechanisms observed could be used to recycle tires, and the answer was yes. As the idea for recycling tires took root, researchers were granted a full patent for their chemical devulcanizing technology in 2016.
Our R&D Team based in Louisville, KY can provide samples of our recovered products from our Pilot Plant and aid in your sustainability journey. A larger demonstration facility is in the engineering and construction phase to provide larger-volume customer samples and next generation recovered products. Plans are in place for a first combined tire shredding and reaction system plant.
