Global coatings company AkzoNobel (Amsterdam) and Dutch carbon black company Black Bear have reached an agreement that take old tires off the road and uses them to produce powder coatings.

The agreement, announced last week (Dec. 7) says that Black Bear’s Cradle-to-Cradle certified carbon black—obtained from end-of-life tires—will be used as a pigment in the eco-premium products developed by AkzoNobel’s Powder Coatings business.

“This partnership is a great example of how the supply chain can contribute to CO2 savings,” said André Veneman, AkzoNobel’s Director of Sustainability. “We encourage more suppliers to work with us and collectively contribute to develop more sustainable product solutions.”

The agreement allows AkzoNobel to use a carbon black with a much lower CO2 footprint that traditionally sourced material, while helping to solve the global waste tire problem, the company notes.

The two companies also announced that they will be working together to find additional applications for Black Bear’s carbon black.
