Eneform creates technology that benefits the environment.

Tyres and plastic waste is a huge global problem. Most waste goes to landfill simply because there is no sustainable solution which can keep up with the amount we generate each year. Eneform have a solution to this problem that is both green and commercially viable.

One billion tyres go to waste every year.

It is estimated that 1 billion tyres reach the end of their life every year. In New Zealand this includes 3.9 million passenger tyres and 1.2 million truck tyres. Most of these tyres in New Zealand are sent to landfill or exported for incineration - neither being an acceptable solution. Tyres in landfills can tear the liners which causes contaminants to leach into surface and ground water. Stockpiling, another common method of dealing with tyres, faces similar difficulties. Even small stockpiles harvest pests and large stockpiles are a huge fire risk.
Eneform can process all of New Zealand's waste tyres with their new pyrolysis process.

Three hundred million tonnes of plastic are produced every year.

Over the last ten years we have produced more plastic than during the whole of the last century. We recover only five percent of the plastics we produce.
This is strongly evident in nappies. By the time a child reaches two and a half they will have used approximately 6,500 nappies - over 10 tonnes of waste. Disposable nappies are made of plastics, elastics, adhesives, paper pulp, and chemicals which do not readily degrade and leach toxins into the ground.

It’s estimated to take 500 hundred years before nappies and other plastics begin to break down. Eneform is working with industry partners and experts to make valuable biofuels from plastic waste through a refined version of their pyrolysis process.

How have we solved the problem?

Eneform have developed a world leading pyrolysis process to deal with tyres and nappies. The pyrolysis process heats the tyres to an extreme temperature, rapidly decomposing them into various compounds which are then condensed into biofuel and gas.

Some of this recycled gas is used as the heat source for the production process, making it a self-sustaining process. Eneform pyrolysis is a unique continuous process, whereas most pyrolysis is done using a batch process. Continuous pyrolysis results in cleaner outputs and less emmissions.

Successful Trials

We have a fully operational pilot plant demonstrating our world-first technology.

Commercially Ready

We are working with industry partners to have our first commercial plant under construction by the end of 2017.

Valuable Outputs

We are building the market for the recycled diesel, LPG, steel and carbon.
