Tyromer Inc. is a company established in 2009 by the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, to commercialize a rubber devulcanization technology invented by Professor Costas Tzoganakis of the Department of Chemical Engineering.
Tyromer uses a strategy of open innovation and collaboration to address the global nature of scrap tires.
We understand the need to work closely with industry leaders, to learn from their experiences and also to share some of ours. Our biggest successes are born from engagement, clear planning, and open communication.
We use a licensing business model. While Tyromer does operate certain facilities, the Company will also license its technology and TDP Production Systems. This is the most efficient way to serve the global market and allows us to focus on our core strength – technology, process, and product development and improvement.
Our affiliation with the University of Waterloo has broadened our corporate
mission and vision, below. These are not empty words.
Every one of us at Tyromer believes and shares these values.
