Brief description

Rubber Resources' recycling activities began nearly 50 years ago in Maastricht, the Netherlands. During that time, they also grew in size to three plants in total. The Maastricht plant is still the main plant, where devulcanisation of natural and butyl rubber occurs on 2 different production lines. These grades of rubber have regained their viscosity as well as the characteristics of the original compound. Their consistent quality makes it possible to be supplied to the major car tyre manufacturers all over the world, as well as to the general rubber goods industry.

The other two plants are in Belgium and South Africa. In South Africa the devulcanisation of SBR/NR (RSR) takes place. Powders and granules (RWM, RSM) are produced in Belgium as well as in South Africa.

Maastricht facilitates R&D support for all plants. The R&D department coordinates most of the major product and process improvements projects.
