rCB Pelletizing Transforms ELTs into Sustainable Solutions

Tire pyrolysis companies and tire recyclers worldwide rely on Mars Mineral pin mixers' continuous, low-maintenance operation to convert rCB into valuable pellets at the optimal size and hardness most coveted by end-users. Pelletizing takes on the environmental challenge caused by the annual disposal of over one billion end-of-life tires (ELTs) and turns them into a sustainable, circular economy solution.
