Company Summary

Clean Steel takes production off-cuts and waste from the major tyre manufacturers. Where these rubber/steel/textile composites were previously incinerated at a cost of >£100/tonne, Clean Steel is able to recover them and sell the separated products back into industry at >50% gross margin. This is environmentally beneficial as it displaces very energy intensive new raw materials. Customers are leading technical rubber product manufacturers.
