Our business first began by applying science to solve water pollution issues in India and we have been wholeheartedly committed to the environment ever since.

From this experience we began applying our learnings to solve one of the world’s largest hazardous waste issues – end-of-life tyres.

In 2017 we began trading as Pearl Global, developing a unique thermal desorption process for tyre recycling – challenging traditional pyrolysis separating tyre waste into component parts.

Our clean conversion technology achieved patents in Australia, the USA and with a European patent under examination.

By early 2022 we processed over two million tyres and have contributed to the decarbonisation of infrastructure across several local government areas in Queensland.

Our showcase facility in Staplyton Queensland operates at commercial capacity processing tyres into high quality products used in manufacturing.  We are set to deliver this waste solution across Australia and the world.

First 24-hour non-stop continuous feed run of the TDU


Pearl is awarded a $1.3 million cash grant by Australian Research Council. Combining this with $830,000 in-kind contributions from universities of WA, Curtin and Newcastle, and Pearl cash and in-kind contributions totaling $1.37 million, Pearl enters a $3.5 million investment program to develop its technology to the next stage and produce even more valuable products


First TDU prototype operated successfully under a Works Approval under Part V of the Western Australian Environmental Protection Act (1986)


The Pearl team spent seven years investigating methods to overcome the environmental problems that use aggressive pyrolysis methods in processing end of life rubber and other waste products. They identified thermal desorption as a clean and viable process and worked together to build a prototype thermal desorption unit (TDU)
