Eldan to supply tyre plant to Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea – Eldan Recycling is preparing to deliver a complete plant to Papua New Guinea for converting all kinds of tyres – including truck and huge mining tyres – into rubber granulate.

Dubbing it a ‘really exciting project’, Eldan estimates production will average 4 tonnes per hour, yielding a 0-4 mm rubber granulate that is 99.9% free of textiles and steel. ‘Papua New Guinea is not a big market, but nevertheless they need durable recycling equipment,’ comments Dr Toni Reftman, Eldan’s Managing Director. ‘We are very proud to have been chosen for this project that shows our capacity to meet customer requirements on all continents.’

Full-scale production will start in the next couple of months and an installation team is currently in the process of getting the production line ready, according to Dr Reftman. The set-up will ultimately include various items of recycling equipment manufactured at Eldan Recycling’s production facility in Denmark.
