MONTREAL--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ecolomondo Corporation (TSXV: ECM) (OTC: ECLMF) (the “Company” or “Ecolomondo”), a cleantech company specializing in the commercialization of its Thermal Decomposition Process (“TDP”) proprietary recycling technology and the global deployment of TDP turnkey facilities, is pleased to announce that it performed another successful test at its new Hawkesbury TDP facility on April 27, 2023.
The technical teams of Ecolomondo performed a test in Reactor 1 with 4,000 lbs payloads to validate and examine the improvements that they put in place after the initial batches. The results are exciting as it is the best batch ever processed by Ecolomondo. The thermal decomposition was processed within 5 hours, from beginning to the end of reactor cooling, much lower than the allotted 6-hour per production cycle, confirming once again the possibility of improved production efficiency in the future.
The technical teams observed that reactor burners worked perfectly, as well as evacuating compressors and general efficiency of all thermal apparatus. The Company has now performed successful batches using both Reactors 1 and 2, setting the stage for increased reactor payloads going forward.
This is another step inching the Hawkesbury plant closer to production ramp-up. The Company is planning to perform batches of 8,000 lbs in both reactors in the next several weeks, gradually increasing reactor payloads to 15,000 lbs per batch.
While management is very optimistic of its schedule, it remains cautious that the ramp-up testing may bring to light certain adjustments that may need to be corrected from time to time, which are commonly inherent to this type of business.
About Ecolomondo Corporation
Ecolomondo Corporation is a Canadian cleantech company that prides itself after its proprietary Thermal Decomposition technology TDP which is headquartered in Québec, Canada. It has a 25-year history and during this time has been focused on its development of its technology and the deployment of TDP turnkey facilities. TDP recovers high value re-usable commodities from scrap tire waste, notably rCB, oil, syngas, fiber and steel. Ecolomondo expects to be a leading player in the cleantech space and be an active contributor to the global circular economy.

Our Mission, Vision & Strategy
Ecolomondo’s mission is to be a contributing participant in a dynamic Circular Economy and to increase shareholder value by producing and supplying large quantities of recovered resources to be re-used in the manufacture of new products.
Ecolomondo’s vision is to be a leading producer and reseller of recovered resources by building and operating TDP facilities, strategically located in industrialized countries, close to feedstock, labor and offtake clients.
Our strategy is to become a major global builder and operator of TDP turnkey facilities, for now specializing in the processing of ELTs. Our intent is to expand aggressively in North America and Europe. Our experience and modular technology should help us get there faster and better. We plan to keep performing ongoing research and development to ensure that Ecolomondo remains technologically advanced.
Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG)
On the social aspect the Company plans to measure global health and safety, injury rate and gender diversity, and finally in the corporate governance aspect, the Company is measuring ethics and anticorruption, ESG reporting and board independence.
The TDP process is technically proven and more advanced than most other pyrolysis technologies. Over the years, our Technological teams were able to overcome all uncertainties that plagued most competitors especially in these areas: pre-filtration, reactor cooling, reactor rotation, reactor evacuation, water recycling, cleaning of rCB, (hydrocarbon removal), mass monitoring, heat curve development, humidity and water removal, safety testing, system automation, emissions control and monitoring, rCB and pyrolysis oil post processing, efficient syngas reuse.
TDP is Environmentally Friendly – CO2 Reduction
By producing rCB, TDP reduces GHG emissions by 90% versus the production of virgin carbon black. The production of rCB at the Hawkesbury and Shamrock facilities are expected to reduce CO2 emissions by 22,400 and 67,200 tons per year, respectively.
