What do we do?
We accept used tires from motorcycles, cars, utility vehicles and agricultural machinery, as well as polymeric materials.
Used tires are considered to be a hazardous waste of class IV and thus subject to mandatory recycling.
Natural decomposition of waste tires takes more than 100 years and poses many potential dangers. They can contaminate groundwater and are not only flammable, but once ablaze, extremely difficult to extinguish. Because of its chemical composition, it is also quite difficult and expensive to dispose without bringing harm to the environment.
It takes 35 liters of crude oil to produce rubber for just one tire, so every dumped tire means another 35 liters of wasted oil.
Recycling is a turnkey solution to all these waste management problems.
We see these problems as opportunities to set a new standard for the waste management, renewable energy production and sustainable local economic growth.
As of today, the Möbius capacities allow to utilize up to 500 tons of raw material per month.
Reprocessing Waste to Mineral Resources
We apply a special melting method called pyrolysis to reprocess waste materials.
Pyrolysis is the destructive distillation of organic material through the application of intense, indirect heat in the absence of oxygen so that combustion does not take place and toxic fumes are not produced. Unlike traditional incineration systems, the pyrolysis plant releases no harmful by-products or emissions.
It is considered to be one of the most efficient ways to convert wastes into biofuels and other useful resources. Here is the full list of products we get out of pyrolysis process:
- Carbon black, which is then processed into the coal briquette or high-quality sorbent.
- Pyrolysis gas, similar to natural gas - we use it in the melting process to heat the thermolysis unit.
- Steel wire (or steel cord) used in the tire manufacture, is separated and transformed into pressed metal or binding wire for construction. In general, synthetic oil possesses mechanical and chemical properties which are superior to those displayed by traditional mineral oil.
- Synthetic oil is used as a substitute for lubricant refined from petroleum when operating in extremes of temperature. It is also applicable to the production of light fuel oil or preparation of components for diesel fuel optimization.
Möbius company is not only a commercial project, but also an environmental solution initiated by a group of socially responsible people.
We advocate a civilized approach to business, when every company is responsible to society and the environment, regardless of the kind of activity.
Creating high-quality products, we are mindful of investing in the environment, and thus care about the future of all mankind.
Our goal is to create and recreate.
Möbius creates jobs. Currently, the company employs 50 workers and we are expanding rapidly.
And, last but not the least; Möbius’ activities contribute to the development of our country's energy independence.
We operate openly and transparently, in compliance with the set industry norms and Ukrainian laws, and have all the necessary licenses and certificates.
It was especially for Möbius that individual specifications for synthetic oil and carbon adsorbent have been first developed and put into operation by two Ukrainian scientific institutes.
We are the only company in Ukraine which has the license to manufacture these products.
