McDermott wins FEED contract from Michelin for tire-recycling project

By Mary Page Bailey |

McDermott International, Ltd. (Houston) announced it has been awarded a Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) contract from the Michelin Group in France for an innovative waste tire technology enabling large-scale production of recycled carbon black—a key ingredient in advancing the next generation of sustainable tires. This award follows a similar FEED announcement in April, which is focusing on the production of regenerated styrene to make synthetic rubber for tires.

Incorporating Scandinavian Enviro Systems’ licensed pyrolysis process, a technology that separates bulky waste into raw materials for repeated production, the implementation of this waste-to-value solution further advances Michelin’s commitment to building a circular economy and increasing the demand—and availability—of sustainable materials.

“The Michelin Group is pioneering advancements in waste recycling technology and has once again selected McDermott to help advance the next generation of sustainable tires,” said Samik Mukherjee, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “This latest contract award strengthens our shared vision for a more sustainable future and solidifies our long-standing relationship.”

McDermott has worked with Michelin since 2008 at varying stages of production, from design to start up.

“With a focus on new energy opportunities and more sustainable industrial processes, we are harnessing our extensive engineering and project delivery expertise to support Michelin’s vision for a sustainable future,” said Tareq Kawash, Senior Vice President, Europe, Middle East, Africa.

The project will be executed from McDermott’s office in Brno, Czech Republic. Work will begin immediately and is expected to be completed in first quarter 2022.
