Florida Automotive Journal
December 1970

Cities Service Co. announced that it has developed a new process that could provide for pollution - free disposal of used tires.  Developed through the Cities Service Research Centers, Cranbury, N. J., and Hancock, La., the process allows large quantities of used tire material to be utilized in oil feedstocks for producing carbon black — a key ingredient in tire manufacturing.

Road tests have shown that carbon black manufactured by this new method produces tire equivalent in wear to those made with conventionally - produced carbon black.

This process has enormous potential for materially reducing the ecological problem created by the approximately 180 million used tires that are discarded each year.

Cities Service is one of the major carbon black manufacturers supplying the rubber industry.  Details of this process have been amde available to the Rubber Manufacturers Association.  The company will work closely with this association as additional work will be required before this process can be made available on a commercial basis.
