Economists have long argued that resources are finite, but human needs and wants are not. This belief was a natural consequence of the traditional linear economy, in which products were used until the end of their lifetime and then discarded as waste. Consequently, most resources used were then rendered as waste. This way of handling the earth’s valuable resources became problematic, not only because it meant using resources only once, but also because of the large amounts of resulting waste and pollution.

Fortunately, the circular economy came to the rescue.  When the economy operates in a circular fashion, waste is not really “waste”; it still has considerable value. As such, when products reach the end of their life they can be reused, recycled, or processed so that they can be repurposed without creating new waste.

Many companies are working hard to develop technologies that will enable them to become major contributors to the global circular economy. As an example, Ecolomondo, a Canadian cleantech company, had the right philosophy from the start and built a scalable technology to maximize the recovery of original components that go into products, so that those components retain their molecular integrity and can be reused in multiple industries.

About Ecolomondo

Ecolomondo Corporation is a Canadian cleantech company that prides itself on its proprietary Thermal Decomposition technology TDP which is headquartered in Québec, Canada. It has a 25-year history and during this time has been focused on the development of its technology and the deployment of TDP turnkey facilities. TDP recovers high-value re-usable commodities from scrap tire waste, notably recovered Carbon Black (“rCB”), oil, syngas, fiber, and steel. Ecolomondo expects to be a leading player in the cleantech space and be an active contributor to the global circular economy. Ecolomondo trades on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol (TSXV:ECM). To learn more, visit

Ecolomondo’s mission is to be a contributing participant in a dynamic Circular Economy and to increase shareholder value by producing and supplying large quantities of recovered resources to be re-used in the manufacture of new products.

Ecolomondo’s vision is to be a leading producer and reseller of recovered resources by building and operating TDP facilities, strategically located in industrialized countries, close to feedstock, labor, and offtake clients.

Ecolomondo’s strategy is to become a major global builder and operator of TDP turnkey facilities, for now specializing in the processing of ELTs. Its intent is to expand aggressively in North America and Europe. Its experience and modular technology should help us get there faster and better. It plans to keep performing ongoing research and development to ensure that Ecolomondo remains technologically advanced.

Having more than 25 years of experience in the industry and having achieved success in forming partnerships that focus on the circular economy, the company is in a prime position to become a major international supplier of recycled resources, including first-rate recycled carbon black, oil, gas, and steel.

In its pilot facility, Ecolomondo has been able to accomplish several of its proprietary goals, such as producing efficient process parameters, automation, emission controls, water recycling and safety. These accomplishments have enabled them to make sure that the quality and consistency of their final products are up to par, which is essential for the successful and profitable operation of a TDP turnkey facility.

TDP is Environmentally Friendly. By producing rCB, TDP reduces GHG emissions by 90% versus the production of virgin carbon black. The production of rCB at the Hawkesbury and Shamrock facilities are expected to reduce CO2 emissions by 22,400 and 67,200 tons per year, respectively.

Ecolomondo’s technology platform is designed to be modular, so each reactor can be used as an independent unit. This allows us to create facilities with a range of sizes and capacities to fulfill customer needs, simply by changing the number of reactors. Any user can take a visual tour of the facility on the company’s website.

About Carbon Black

Carbon black sometimes referred to as “soot”, is a black, amorphous form of carbon that has a high surface area to volume ratio. Carbon black has been used for centuries. It is used mostly as a key ingredient to manufacture rubber products and to color plastics in the automotive, electronics, and aerospace industries, for such applications as a pigment, reinforcing filler, printing ink, and conductive additive. It is produced by the incomplete combustion of heavy petroleum products such as coal tar, furnace oil, and ethylene. At its most basic, carbon black is a pure form of elemental carbon in which the atoms are arranged in a rigid, three-dimensional lattice structure. This structure gives the material its unique properties, including its light absorption, electrical conductivity, and high surface area. Carbon black is typically pelletized in the form of particles, ranging in size from 10 nanometers to 500 nanometers. The size and shape of these particles can vary depending on the manufacturing process and the desired application.

Final Words

Ecolomondo combines great engineering with a focus on sustainability. Its modular TDP technology can be readily scalable. The efficient design of the TDP facilities ensures economic viability and benefits to all stakeholders, including industrial customers, end users, investors, and society at large. Since the circular economy focuses on reducing the amount of natural resources that would be used, by replacing them with recovered ones, this helps to reduce the burden on our planet.

In the past, it was the steam engine and then the internet, this time it is recycling and the circular economy that will drive the next global economic boom”, says Eliot Sorella, Chairman and CEO of Ecolomondo.
