Synopsis: Orion has been the front runner for sustainable carbon blacks. With PRINTEX Nature, it produced the first carbon black from renewable feedstock. Another path is the use of tyre pyrolysis oil as a feedstock. In the frame of the EU-funded project BlackCycle, several carbon black grades have been produced which perform like traditional carbon blacks from fossil feedstocks. A third path is based on recovered carbon black which will be upgraded by a cleaning and blending process. This presentation displays where Orion stands with its projects, which products are commercially available and what the next milestones are.
