Circtec signs an eight-year agreement with bp for production plant in Delfzijl

Circtec, which is building a factory in Delfzijl to convert discarded tires into transportation fuels, chemicals, and carbon black via pyrolysis, has signed an eight-year agreement with bp for the purchase of renewable marine fuel and raw material for circular naphtha. Additionally, bp will invest €12.5 million in the factory.

According to the agreement, bp will purchase up to 60,000 tons of HUPATM renewable marine fuel and up to 15,000 tons of petrochemical raw material for circular naphtha annually from Circtec’s new factory in Delfzijl.

The €285 million new factory will have the capacity to process 200,000 tons of waste tires per year into HUPATM renewable marine fuel, raw material for circular naphtha petrochemicals, and circularly chemically recovered carbon black (rCB). Construction of the new factory will commence this year, with the first phase operational by 2025.

The Delfzijl factory is Circtec’s first investment in a commercial-scale facility. The plan is to introduce several new factory projects worldwide, starting with North America and Southeast Asia.

In 2021, a long-term off-take partnership was already announced with Birla Carbon, one of the world’s largest producers of chemical carbon black, for the entire output of recovered carbon black (rCB) from the new factory in Delfzijl.
