Maryville Tire Plant is a facility situated on 4.9 acres in Maryville, Missouri that converts used tires into recycled carbon black and engine oil products. These waste tires were historically placed in tire monofils and are destructive to the environment. The facility was originally constructed in 2009 and is currently being repositioned, and when completed, is projected to convert approximately 60 net tons per day of tires into marketable products that may be sold under long-term contracts to corporate buyers and/or institutions.
