Site Manager for Åsensbruk and upcoming Uddevalla plant

Site Manager for Åsensbruk and upcoming Uddevalla plant

Enviro is the market leader in the recovery of valuable resources from End-of-Life Tyres (ELT). The resources that are recovered in the process are Carbon Black (rCB), Oil (TPO), steel and gas. Enviro is listed in the Nasdaq First North Growth Market. Our three patents held in more than 50 countries form the foundation for the technical achievements that have attracted Michelin as the largest shareholder since the spring of 2020.

Michelin is one of many leading tyre manufacturers that understands and actively strives to meet Enviro’s ambitious strategic targets of 100% sustainable tyres by 2050. Michelin has also already proved the quality and commercial value of recovered Carbon Black (rCB) from Enviro by introducing the sustainable material in the Moto-e racing circuit during 2021.

Enviro has presented an expansion plan that involves the industrialization of their modularized technology and establishment of about 30 plants until 2030. The first plant project is being started as a Joint Venture with Michelin in Mejillones, Chile. The second plant will be established in Uddevalla, Sweden. Currently Enviro has a plant in Åsensbruk, Sweden. The experience from developing, validating, and operating that plant is a very important part of the company´s growth.

The significant increase in demand for the recovered materials, as well as the technology, makes the existing plant and its capacity a strategically important asset. The experienced team at Åsensbruk is also valuable for designing the future plant operations, routines, and training activities. The plant in Åsensbruk began operations in 2013 and made the first commercial deliveries of rCB already in 2016, replacing fossil Carbon Black by 100% in rubber components used in Volvo Cars.

As a Site Manager for Sweden, you will be in a key position in the industrialization of a world leading sustainable technology. Enviro is offering the challenge to further develop and improve the operational processes at the plants in Sweden as well as the creation of a world class foundation for the expansion plan. The plant in Uddevalla will become a benchmark production site and the center of excellence within the group. Enviro offers you this great opportunity to take an active part in the expansion of an innovative company, with the goal of enabling its unique circular solutions.
