Innovative Tyre Recycling Process Named As Australian New Invention Of The Year

Australian inventor John Dobozy has won the ABC television "New Inventors" award with his new recycling technology for extracting lucrative materials from waste tyres, economically and environmentally.

The innovative process, known as Molectra,reclaims all of the components that make up a tyre cleanly and efficiently without waste, residue, or emissions whilst extracting various products for re-use. The process recycles one hundred percent of the tyre.

The Molectra process integrates mechanical, chemical and microwave treatments to cleanly and efficiently break the tyre down into its base materials – oil, carbon, rubber granules, steel and plastic fibres, which can then be made into valuable products and resources.

Molectra uses tyres to produce the following rubber based products for residential and commercial applications:

  • Rubber Matting
  • Silicone Tiles
  • Rebonded Pavers
  • Rebonded Block
  • Rebonded Pipe
  • Soil Aerator
  • Hyrdo-Chips

Other products and uses derived from Molectra's Tyre Recycling:

  • Crumb Rubber
  • Steel Fibre
  • Raw Oil
  • Carbon
  • Heavy Hydrocarbons
  • Light Hydrocarbons
  • Limonene
  • Carbon Black
  • Activated Carbon
  • Casting Carbon
  • Furnace Oil
  • Diesel additive
  • Automative lube
  • Electricity
  • Gas Oil
