About Bolder Industries
The company’s mission is to divert more solid waste from landfilling and incineration than any other single effort in the world. Traditional tire-waste recycling methods typically ignore greenhouse gas emissions, water usage, electricity consumption, and the destination of the “recycled” raw materials. Bolder Industries solves these challenges through cutting-edge technological developments and patents.
BolderBlack is a sustainable alternative to traditional carbon black produced using waste tires that would otherwise be in landfills or incinerated. BolderBlack is created in a net energy positive facility that emits 90% less CO2e and uses 90% less H2O than traditional methods.
