CEVA Klean GPCEVA Logistics (“CEVA”) a world leader in third-party logistics announced today that it has executed a Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) with Klean Industries Inc ("Klean"), a leading company providing technologies and solutions to solve the global end-of-life tire issue and Goodpack (“GP”) a world leader in reusable metal containers to collaborate on the development of a fully holistic supply chain that produces the global solution for end-of-life tires (“ELTs").

This partnership will leverage the expertise and resources of the parties' specialized skill sets by creating industrial symbiosis across several supply chains. In doing so the parties believe they will be able to create measurable change to solve the end-of-life tire problems globally by integrating a total solution that includes green logistics, low carbon intensity manufacturing and distribution combined with a digital technology infrastructure that will aid in the development of the low carbon, circular economy, and the goal of zero waste to landfill.

Under the terms of the MOU, Klean, CEVA, and GP will develop a proof of concept (“POC”) in the Oceania region for the reverse collection of end-of-life tires. The POC is intended to deliver results that will significantly reduce the logistics-related carbon emissions associated with the distribution of new tires and the reverse logistics of ELTs on an integrated basis. The long-term environmental and financial impacts from the use of tires including the resources used in manufacturing and recycling of tires are also reduced. The POC will also evaluate the use of GP’s reusable intermediate bulk containers (“IBC”) throughout the ELTs supply chain.

The last mile of closing the loop on ELTs is done when the end-of-life tires are delivered to Klean’s processing plants where resources such as recovered carbon black (“rCB”) and recovered fuel oil (rFO”) are manufactured and re-distributed back into new tires, virgin carbon blacks and renewable fuels manufacturing sectors for reuse to produce new green products with significantly lower carbon intensity throughout the manufacturing and production supply chain associated to the tire industry. All these activities will then be combined into the Klean Loop™, a SaaS blockchain technology, as a fully integrated system to track and trace all aspects of the tire life cycle. From this perspective, the patent pending Klean Loop™ platform will provide supply chain transparency which will further enable the supply chain partners to measurably improve their financial and environmental performance.

“As we navigate the complexities of global supply chains with our partners, it is imperative that we prioritize sustainability. By embracing circular economies and finding better ways to transport products, we can boost transparency, minimize waste, and reduce the environmental impact of the tire and rubber industries, while also driving economic growth in Oceania," said Bruno Plantaz, Managing Director for APAC, CEVA Logistics.

"We are proud to work with industry leaders through our journey of creating circular supply chains and I am excited to see how this partnership will change the tire sector towards a better, safer, and a more sustainable future”, said Peet Leong Kok, Goodpack COO, and Global Business Director, Tires.

“This MOU establishes the framework and vision to drive change not seen before in the tire and carbon black manufacturing sectors. We believe this partnership represents one of the single biggest opportunities to create a completely circular tire industry making it the shining example of what can be done when we partner to create symbiosis between waste, resources, and energy,” commented Jesse Klinkhamer, CEO of Klean Industries Inc.
