Montreal, QC, October 25, 2021- Ecolomondo Corporation (TSXV:ECM) (OTC:ECLMF) (the “Company” or “Ecolomondo”), a cleantech company specializing in the development of proprietary recycling technology, Thermal Decomposition Process (“TDP”), and the commercialization of turnkey TDP facilities, is pleased to announce it has received its Environmental Compliance Approvals (“ECAs”) from the Ontario Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks (“MECP”) to operate its Hawkesbury, Ontario TDP facility used to transform end-of-life tires into recycled carbon black and other renewable commodities.
The receipt of the MECP approvals for waste, storm water management, air and noise brings Ecolomondo into full compliance with all required environmental standards, completing another major step towards the commissioning of the Hawkesbury plant. The state-of-the-art facility is equipped with the latest emissions control technology, including real-time emissions measuring, scrubbing units for removal of contaminants and ground flares, all with an intelligent burner management system to ensure a clean burn to avoid nitrogen oxide (NOx) and sulphur oxide (SOx).
“These approvals, along with our recently announced multi-year tire feedstock supply contract (and $3.4M associated revenue), are incredible achievements by the Company as we near commercialization,” said Eliot Sorella, Ecolomondo’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Ecolomondo will play a fundamental role in the processing of hydrocarbon waste and resource recovery, emerging as a dominant player in the circular economy and future sustainability efforts.”
Robustly designed to efficiently handle large quantities of end-of-life tire feedstock, the 46,200-square foot building boasts impressive indoor clearance of 28 feet and consists of four different departments: shredding, thermal process, recovered carbon black processing and oil distillation. The plant is expected to process a minimum of 14,000 tons of tire waste per year, producing 5,300 tons of recycled carbon black, 42,700 barrels of oil, 1,800 tons of steel, 850 tons of fiber and 1,600 tons of syngas.
