Klean Produces Nano Carbons Used in Advanced Resins from Waste Tires & Scrap Rubber

Published on 2012-07-19. Author : SpecialChem

Vancouver, Canada -- Klean Industries Inc. ("Klean"), a vertically-integrated Industrial Energy Solutions Company focused on turning waste streams into domestic energy, sustainable green commodities & new jobs. Klean has commenced full-scale production of Nano Carbons and has formed Klean Carbon, through which Klean will supply advanced Nano Carbons.

Klean, with its patented technology is producing high grade nanotubes and fullerenes from feedstock derived from tyre pyrolysis facilities. The Japanese technology has been developed with over 35 years of collaborative research in nano materials, these major advancements enabled the company to be the first to commercially mass produce Nano Carbons from scrap tires. The Klean Team has been developing facilities that can process in excess of 250 tonnes per day of high carbon content feedstock into nano materials by using an advanced thermal treatment technology.

Jesse Klinkhamer, Klean's CEO said, "We take the carbonized materials and pass it through a multi stage process unique to Klean that removes any impurities by using patented technologies. The materials we produce will provide industry with high quality nano commodities that can significantly reduce product manufacturing costs and the environmental footprint of such products, while also increasing product durability and improve manufacturing efficiencies at the same time."

Klean Carbon's products have been used in many different industrial applications including: advanced resins, flexible film packaging applications, solar power films, nano plastics, advanced rubber compounds, touch screen devices, industrial and performance coatings. The nano materials provide improved thermal, mechanical, tensile or protective properties compared to traditional industrial materials.

Klean research laboratories are now working on the next generation of nano materials for different applications such as nano-alloys, nano-laminated film and packaging films with extreme durability. "Nano technology is one of the most important advancements of the coming decade and is critical to the evolution of our environmental sustainability," said Dr. Hiroyuki, Head of Development.
