Vancouver, Canada — Klean Industries Inc. (“Klean”), a leading tire pyrolysis equipment manufacturer that designs and builds pyrolysis projects for processing hydrocarbon-based waste such as end-of-life tires, announced today that tire and recovered carbon black (rCB) expert, Dave Abdallah has joined the KleanTeam as Senior Strategic Advisor. Mr. Abdallah has previously worked with Bolder Industries and Delta Energy Group after spending more than 20 years at Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations.

As stated by Jesse Klinkhamer, CEO of Klean Industries, “Mr. Dave Abdallah joins us at this exciting time in Klean Industries’ development. Dave’s breadth of experience in the tire and rubber industries, his chemical and technical background, and his dedication and passion for these circular economy solutions make him an outstanding member of our team. We believe Dave’s expertise and background will support Klean’s position as the leading state-of-the-art manufacturer of unique specialty tire-derived chemicals that have valued applications across many industries.

“We are especially honored because we consider Dave to be one of the true pioneers in the development of recovered carbon black for utilization by tire and rubber industries. Dave’s research and development activities at Bridgestone and Delta Energy resulted in Bridgestone becoming the first tire maker to incorporate recovered carbon black in the tire manufacturing process. We know that Dave’s role was critical in creating the rCB industry that we all support today.”

Klean Industries owns the proprietary technology that is the only continuously operating, commercial-scale tire pyrolysis plant in Europe that has been in operation since 2016.
