Explosive population growth with improved living standards and increased industrialization has caused a surge in global demand for land-based transportation of goods and services. Klean has completed a vast amount of research and due diligence on over 3,000 projects and technology developments relating to the tire and rubber recycling and tire manufacturing supply chains and their industrial footprint on the planet. The critical data underpins the findings and we have found that the infrastructure for supporting the stable supply of recovered resources for the automotive, plastic, tire, and rubber-related industries, is crumbling under poor resource management for the supply and demand for servicing the current and expanding marketplace.
Klean’s lifecycle analysis has led us to understand the intimate relationships between this supply chain and marketplace like no other company in the industry. The industry is now facing new regulatory changes, significant environmental concerns, and restructuring due to poor resource management and the overall escalating raw material costs. On top of these compounding conditions, the tire recycling technologies and existing treatment facilities that service these industries are outdated and insufficiently developed for the volume of current and future production. Klean has made this transition into the scrap tire recycling business, through strategic technology investments in Asia, North America, and Europe.
The KleanTeam has established itself as a leader in delivering vertically integrated solutions that focus on the application of technologies to recover valuable resources and energy from waste tires. Klean provides a comprehensive approach to renewable energy and the development of long-term infrastructure projects that deliver sustainable commodities to the circular economy. Klean has a global reach and is facing strong growth opportunities in a market set to exceed US$1 trillion by 2030. The current marketplace exceeds $200 billion annually and has a growth rate of 5.9% annually, the tire and rubber-related market alone has tripled in less than 20 years.
