HOUSTON - The world's largest tire recycling company, Genan, officially opened their new tire recycling facility. The facility was constructed over the last two years with an investment of $140 million.

The plant at 18038 Beaumont Hwy. has the capacity to recycle approximately 10 million passenger car tire equivalents a year, about a third of all the used tires in Texas.

The Houston facility, now the largest of its kind in the world, marks the first manufacturing location launched by the company in the U.S. and will become the U.S. headquarters for their expansion plans in an effort to capture 10 percent of the American recycled tire market.

Within 24 months, the Genan Houston plant will be expanded to produce a line of very fine cryogenic rubber powder and a technologically unique devulcanization line for the production of rubber, which will be able to substitute virgin rubber compounds.
