As previously reported on this blog, Green Tire Systems plans to build a tire recycling plant at an unused brownfield site in Niagara Falls, New York. Santarosa Holdings is developing the site with the help of brownfield cleanup dollars from the federal government through the Niagara County Brownfield Development Corp.
On Tuesday, the project moved one step closer to completion with the demolition of the existing buildings on the site.
According to Green Tire Systems, the tire recycling facility will employ a highly technological process that reclaims the core components used to make the modern tire; carbon black, oil, steel, and syngas. The article did not provide a completion date for the facility.
