Rubber and tire industry

  • Zeppelin Gummi- und Reifenindustrie

Knowledge pays off

Zeppelin relies on its own first-class technology for rubber and tire plants. More than 500 systems that have been constructed around the world as well as a list of references with all the major companies from the industry also speak for themselves within this sector.

The operating success of companies in the rubber and tire industry depends on the exact mixing of raw materials and the reliable and high-precision supply and dosing. A decisive factor is the mixing – a task that requires special technologies, know-how and most importantly experience.

Zeppelin supplies complete plants from a single source from the receipt of raw materials and the storage and conveying technology, the weighing and dosing of carbon black, silica, oils as well as other additives and small components through to turn-key mixing rooms.

Closing the recycling loop

Around 630,000 tons of used tires are accumulated each year in Germany alone. There are 3.2 million tons within the European Union and even 4.4 million in the USA. In the European Union alone, 4% of these end up in landfill sites and 50% are used as fuel in furnaces within the cement industry – a huge waste of precious raw materials. Still, every car tire contains approx. 2 to 3 kg of carbon black.

Zeppelin is seeking to eliminate this waste and ensure sustainable business activities through recycling. Together with our project partner Pyrolyx AG we have succeeded in recovering oil, gas and high-quality carbon black in particular from tires on an industrial scale.

The quality of the carbon black is a decisive factor for the effectiveness of the process. As a leading manufacturer of systems for the tire industry, we enjoy a high reputation within this field with our process engineering know-how. With our turn-key recycling systems we want to close the recycling loop, conserve resources and play our part in ensuring that energy efficiency and sustainability are not just empty phrases, but instead have an effective impact in reality.
