Our Mission

Delta-Energy began with a unique premise: a belief that a solution could be found for preserving the properties of recovered carbon black from rubber. We strive to revolutionize production of recovered carbon black and organic liquid products from post-consumer tire rubber to become the premier global supplier. We focus on the Delta-Energy way: a proprietary process creating quality products, meeting customer needs, market performance and environmental sustainability.

Delta-Energy is ISO 9001:2015 Certified.

We recover chemicals from post-consumer scrap tire rubber using our unique DEPolymerization™ process:

  • Catalyzed, low temperature, continuous
  • Hundreds of degrees lower than pyrolysis

About Us

Delta-Energy Group, LLC, company milestones have been strategically supported by Castleton Commodities International (CCI), Bridgestone Americas (BATO), and the RJ Lee Group (RJLG).

CCI, an independent global energy commodity merchant and infrastructure asset investor, created the opportunity for plant production to quadruple in 2020 when it funded the Natchez, MS, manufacturing infrastructure in 2018.

Using Delta-Energy’s recovered carbon black, BATO has incorporated a greener raw material into their tires and accessed a source to hedge against decreasing world supply of raw carbon. A collaboration with BATO began in 2007 with their approval of DE-Black for tire manufacturing and the goal of promoting industrial-scale recycling, or a “circular” economy. By 2014, a fully formed joint venture between founder RJLG and BATO, created the entity known today as Delta-Energy Group, LLC.

In the early 2000’s, RJLG, a premier materials science company, formed a subsidiary focused on post-consumer tire recovery. Analysts discovered the complex operating parameters to best preserve the properties of carbon black and recovered solvents and oils with marketable properties. These multiple products with their unique characteristics establish Delta-Energy Group as an exceptional and emerging leader in the resource recovery field.

Our Philosophy

Our products’ performance characteristics are not the only way you benefit from using them. We continuously look for better ways to use the materials we buy and the products we make for even greater resource recovery value and savings for you. For example, we apply our philosophy of waste minimalization by selecting packaging materials that can be reused or even incorporated into end users’ products. These choices reduce your package disposal costs.

Delta Energy product lines are backed by our outstanding customer service and responsive technical assistance. Through our testing lab partners we have the capability to attend to most any technical product issue that we cannot address in-house.
