PELOTON TECHNOLOGIES, LLC specializes in practical innovation to transform agricultural and industrial residues into valuable new materials and products.
Repurposing agricultural and industrial food production residues that would otherwise be landfilled or subject to other limited and undesirable disposal methods is the impetus for our materials innovation. We are a leader in advancing the beneficial use of under-utilized agricultural raw materials.
As an example, natural and synthetic rubbers need additional reinforcing fillers to achieve desired properties for the final rubber product. Legacy fillers are carbon blacks and precipitated silicas. Various fillers possess various qualities such as tensile strength, aging resistance, abrasion resistance and others and are chosen based on the desired results for a specific product.
Tires, as an example, contain petroleum-based carbon blacks as part of the rubber formulation. That’s why your tires are black. Traditionally produced by the incomplete combustion of heavy petroleum, carbon blacks are used as a pigment and fillers in tires as well as a million other products. These fillers conduct heat away from the tread and belt area of the tire, which reduces thermal damage and extends the life of the tire. Additionally, fillers reduce the amount of costly rubber necessary to build a tire. Unfortunately, there is also a down-side in that carbon black production creates undesirable environmental by-products.
Peloton Technologies provides innovative materials created from agricultural and industrial processing residues that are grounded in world-class research with an eye toward real world practical solutions. Our materials are proven to have higher performance qualities and other advantages in applications where legacy materials like carbon blacks and silicas have previously been used. Our calcium carbonate (CaCO3) materials can greatly reduce the negative impact of materials like carbon black and silicas when used in your rubber products.
