The article reports that Tyromer Inc., a start-up rubber devulcanization company, has received 750,000 dollars in initial funding from a venture capital firm Accelerator Centre. Tyromer will use the money to complete a devulcanization machine discovered by Costas Tzoganakis of the University of Waterloo. The process rejuvenates the performance characteristics of scrap tire rubber, allowing it to be reused in making tires, automotive seals and other high-value-added products.
