Maryville Carbon Solutions Ramps up Bolder Black™ Production,

Sets Ambitious Growth Goals for 2017

Newly designed facility in Maryville will hire more than 15 employees in the coming months

MARYVILLE, MO (FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE) – Maryville Carbon Solutions (MCS), a Maryville-based facility owned by Bolder Industries (formerly Waste to Energy Partners) and  producer of Bolder Black™ — a quality, sustainable alternative to traditional carbon black — plans to be operational by next month and has announced ambitious goals for 2017.

In the coming year, MCS plans to process a minimum of 1 million waste tires, resulting in 7 million pounds of recycled Bolder Black™, 1.2 million gallons of reclaimed oil, and 1,600 tons of recycled steel. To achieve these ambitious goals, MCS will be hiring 15-20 employees in the coming month including a plant manager, quality control technician, pyro engineer, finishing operator as well as other mechanics, technicians, and engineers. Providing secure jobs with benefits and a healthy, team-oriented work environment are paramount goals for the company. Complete job descriptions can be found at https://jobs.mo.gov/

“NCED is proud to welcome Maryville Carbon Solutions to the Maryville business community,” says Dan Hegeman, Chairman of Nodaway County Economic Development (NCED). “Over the last three years, MCS has methodically rebuilt the plant while establishing a market for their product. We are excited to see the culmination of all the hard work they have put into making the facility operational. Thank you to MCS for investing in Maryville.”

The award-winning Bolder Black™ is a sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to carbon black, an oil-derived component used in nearly all rubber and black plastic products. Made from end-of-life tires, Bolder Black™ converts solid waste from traditional disposal methods and diverts significant amounts of waste from overtaxed landfills. This is all done through a low emission, thermal decomposition process that is less taxing on the environment than traditional production methods, making it a highly sustainable operation and product.

“The City of Maryville is excited about the announcement of Maryville Carbon Solutions. The group has worked diligently to develop a successful plan for operations, safety, and will create a long-term asset for the community”, stated City Manager Greg McDanel.

Before being purchased by Bolder Industries, the MCS facility was owned by CMC and served primarily as a research & development facility. Since taking over operations in 2014, Bolder Industries has invested more than $10 million to rebuild the plant and has brought in a highly seasoned management team to implement rigorous manufacturing standards that meet regulatory requirements and create an entirely new product from new processes — one that they expect to bring dozens of new jobs to Maryville in the years to come.

“We look forward to having a positive and powerful impact in the Maryville community and are very excited to grow our team,” says Bolder Industries CEO Tony Wibbeler.  “As the demand for Bolder Black™ grows, our goal is to create a worldwide standard for a new closed loop solution right here in Maryville — one that starts with the processing of waste tires and results in the delivery of valuable resources and high-performance products to industrial manufacturers. We’re excited about where we are as an organization and are really looking forward to being a part of the great Maryville community.”
