CRR Carbon Resources Recovery SC LLC, a manufacturer of recycled tire materials, is planning to locate its first North American facility in Anderson County. The company’s $20 million investment is expected to create approximately 30 new jobs over the next two years.
“We are excited to bring sustainable, renewable energy to South Carolina and continue our mission to provide a green process that eliminates waste and continues to help achieve the United States’ sustainability goals,” said James P. Sweeney, president of BVA Energy . “We’d like to thank S.C. Commerce and Anderson County for their continued commitment throughout this process.”
CRR Carbon Resources uses an innovative manufacturing system to recycle shredded tire materials into renewable energy products. The company’s specialized green process supports environmental sustainability goals, eliminates the disposing of tires in such places as landfills, incinerators and boilers and provides a full recovery of recyclable materials.
CRR is working with a New England JV partner which has been a leader in developing clean energy projects for the last 35 years with the ability to design, finance, develop, construct, operate and manage large scale energy projects.
The company expects construction to be complete by the end of 2015 at which time CRR will work with Anderson County to hire and train local personnel to staff the new plant.
The Coordinating Council of Economic Development approved job development credits for the project.
Since 2011, South Carolina has recruited more than $1 billion in capital investment and created more than 2,300 jobs in the recycling-related sector.
The South Carolina Commerce Department said CRR would work in a joint venture with an unnamed partner that can design, finance, develop, construct, operate and manage large-scale energy projects. Additional details about the joint venture and CRR were unavailable.
