CRR Carbon Resources Recovery SC, a manufacturer of recycled tire materials, plans to locate a production facility in Anderson County, South Carolina. The company’s $20 million investment is expected to create approximately 30 new jobs over the next two years.
Carbon Resources uses an innovative manufacturing system to recycle shredded tire materials into renewable energy products. The company’s specialized green process supports environmental sustainability goals, eliminates the disposing of tires in such places as landfills, incinerators and boilers and provides a full recovery of recyclable materials.
CRR is working with a New England JV partner, which has been a leader in developing clean energy projects for the last 35 years, with the ability to design, finance, develop, construct, operate and manage large scale energy projects.
The company expects construction to be complete by the end of 2015 at which time CRR will work with Anderson County to hire and train local personnel to staff the new plant. The Coordinating Council of Economic Development approved job development credits for the project.
“It speaks volumes to the strength of our state’s business environment and skilled workforce when a company like CRR decides to locate its first North American plant here. We applaud CRR’s decision to invest $20 million in our state and create 30 new jobs in Anderson County,” Governor Nikki Haley.
“Being dubbed ‘Tire Nation,’ it makes sense that we would not only produce the most tires in the nation, but have companies that turn end-of-life tires back into renewable, sustainable energy. It is a circle of life and we are glad to be the beginning and end factors of such thanks to companies like CRR,” Secretary Bobby Hitt said.
