Montreal, QC, November 24, 2022 — Ecolomondo Corporation (TSXV: ECM) (OTC: ECLMF) (the “Company” or “Ecolomondo”), a cleantech company specializing in the commercialization of its Thermal Decomposition Process (“TDP”) proprietary recycling technology and the building and operating of turnkey TDP facilities globally, received the final certification of the newly constructed Hawkesbury TDP facility.
The Company invested approximately $42 million in the construction of this 2-reactor TDP facility in Hawkesbury, Ontario, that is expected to process 14,000 tons of scrap tires per year to produce 5,300 tons of recovered carbon black (“rCB”), 42,700 barrels of oil, 1,800 tons of steel, 1,600 tons of process gas and 850 tons of fiber. Revenue streams of the Hawkesbury facility will come from the sale of the recovered end-products, more precisely carbon black, oil, steel and fiber, while the syngas will be consumed in the process.
The Company is pleased to announce its breaking news, that it has received final certification from TSSA (Technical Standards and Safety Authority) for its Hawkesbury TDP facility. TSSA is Ontario’s public safety regulator mandated by the Government of Ontario to enforce technical safety regulations and enhance public safety, for boilers and pressure vessels, fuels and other equipment.
The commissioning of the Hawkesbury TDP facility required many certifications from TSSA. The certification process has been long and tedious, with start-up delayed mostly by COVID and a 3-month strike by TSSA inspectors during this Summer.
Certification is now confirmed for all the equipment at the Hawkesbury facility, the latest being for the flare.
“Achieving this milestone is an exciting accomplishment, in spite of the many bumps along the road, we are finally getting there! As soon as the thermal reactors are safety and leak tested one last time, we expect to start processing rubber waste with a gradual ramp-up of production to follow”, says Eliot Sorella, Ecolomondo’s President & CEO.
