Ecolomondo is a clean tech company that developed the Thermal Decomposition technology platform, TDP. This proprietary technology is based on a pyrolytic platform that converts hydrocarbon waste (scrap tires) into marketable resources: recovered carbon black, oil, gas, steel and fiber.

The TDP technology was perfected at our Contrecoeur facility and is now scaled at Hawkesbury. It was instrumental in achieving many of the proprietary milestones such as efficient process parameters, automation, emission controls, water recycling and safety, all needed for TDP to operate commercially, while ensuring quality and consistency of its end-products. 

Hydrocarbons are molecules that are in all products manufactured using fossil fuels. The most common types of hydrocarbon waste are tires, plastics, disposed diapers, asphalt roof shingles and automobile shred residue (ASR).

TDP creates much higher added value from hydrocarbon waste than conventional methods of recycling and disposal. TDP is also more sustainable and greener. The key advantages that will drive TDP’s success are quality and consistency of its end-products, high efficiency, high quality yields that has global demand, automated system, energy self-sufficiency, low production and low capital costs per ton of capacity

Rigorous Research and Development performed by our qualified team of professionals along with a dedicated and effective management have positioned Ecolomondo to be a major industry player.

Our Vision

For over 25 years we have overcome all of the technological challenges created by hydrocarbon waste. Our motivation was and is the result of our commitment to a cleaner and more sustainable planet by reducing and recycling hydrocarbon waste.

Our vision is to be recognized as a global cleantech innovator and strategic partner to industry and communities. Ecolomondo is committed to the commercialization of advanced recycling technologies and the international rollout of highly scalable turnkey Thermal Decomposition Process (“TDP”) facilities specializing in the responsible and cost-efficient treatment and transformation of hydrocarbon waste into valuable circular economy recovered resources. We envision Ecolomondo turnkey facilities operating throughout North America and overseas to ensure effective and eco friendly waste management.

While our focus has been and is on our technology, we believe in our corporate commitment to society, and for this reason, we have adopted the triple bottom line approach to business, focusing on people, planet and profit.
