Recovered carbon black (rCB) is an environmentally-friendly substitute for virgin carbon black which is obtained by pyrolysis of scrap and unused tires. It emits less carbon dioxide (CO2). It typically contains 10-20%, by weight, of non-carbonaceous material and is free from fabric and steel wire. Depending on its post-treatment method, rCB has reinforcing properties in the range of an N500-N700 standard carbon black.
Based on application, the global recovered carbon black market has been divided into tire, non-tire rubber, coatings, plastics, and inks. Among these, the tire segment dominated the global market in 2017 owing to the high consumption of recovered carbon black as reinforcing filler in tires. In addition, it is also used to impart color to tires. It is widely used in several automotive tire parts such as sidewalls, treads, and inner-liners.
The non-tire rubber segment accounted for the second-largest market share in 2017 and is estimated to register the highest CAGR in the coming years. This is attributed to the increasing use of the product in the manufacturing of conveyor belts, gaskets, rubber sheets, hoses, seals, and rubber roofing, among others. Additionally, it is also used in footwear rubber due to its high abrasion resistance property. Recovered carbon black increases the overall strength of mechanical rubber products as it has low ash content.
