Ajax, Ontario -- Canadian company, Environmental Waste International Inc. (EWI) said it has signed an agreement in principle to form a number of joint-venture companies with the exclusive rights to EWI's patented "Reverse Polymerisation" technology. The deal, with Israeli comany TRD Instum Ltd., aims to set up the JVs in Israel and certain European countries. The companies expect to sign a final agreement before the end of May.
Part of the agreement is that the Israeli partner buys a machine from EWI. This unit said EWI, "reduces tyres to carbon black, oil, steel and non-condensable gases." The company does not refer to pyrolysis in its information, but says the reverse polymerisation process, "is the break down of organic compounds to simple molecules resulting from the direct application of high-energy microwaves in a nitrogen environment." It adds, however, that the "reaction occurs at relatively low chamber temperatures of 150C to 350C, depending on the application. This differs from pyrolysis and incineration, which generally occur at much higher temperature."
The aim is for the Israeli company to set the machine up to act as a showpiece for marketing the system within the European sphere. The companies did not say which European countries are covered by the agreement.
