Full Circle Technologies has developed a chemical-mechanical process to take old tires free of steel and fiber, devulcanize and turn it back into soft pliable rubber that retains up to 80% of its elastic recovery, tensile strength and performance properties. The process is clean and environmentally friendly, does not create any emissions, effluent or byproducts of any kind. The finished product is a round, devulcanized rubber pellet called Ecorphalt whose main market is the asphalt pavement industry, where it is added to liquid asphalt to make a less brittle, more flexible, and longer lasting road surface.

Many states have passed legislation that requires old tires to be used in asphalt pavements, In addition, the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA) of 1991, Section 1038 mandated the use of rubber modified asphalt pavements in a certain portion of federally funded highway projects begun after 1995 with continuous increases in subsequent years.

The Ecorphalt product will be sold to petroleum terminal companies. State Departments of Transportation (DOT), however, must approve any raw material product in asphalt pavements.

Ecorphalt will be used as an asphalt modifier to make roads more flexible, increase durability, enhance performance, extend life, provide a smoother ride with less cracks and potholes and lower costs.

The process to create Ecorphalt has been developed and refined over multiple years and the technology is covered by 4 US Patents. Using a proprietary chemical blend and temperature profile, scrap tire powder is added into a high shear internal mixer. In the resulting reaction and chemical-mechanical
process, cross-links are broken down and the polymer is devulcanized.

The mix is then fed through a pelletizer extruder to make it into small round pellets and is cooled and packaged.
The pelletized finished product is designed for easy handling and dispersion and is free flowing for easy discharge.

Ecorphalt pellets are packaged either in 2,000 lb Gaylord boxes, 2,000 lb supersacks or preweight low melt inclusion polybags.
