Delighted to Announce Appointment of New Managing Director

Scott Robson

We are delighted to announce that our Group FD, Scott Robson, has recently been appointed as Managing Director of our Renewables Division.

Home of the UK’s only continuous pyrolysis plant, Scott will now guide the business into the final installation and commissioning phase before it becomes fully completed in the late summer. It is anticipated that by early October, the plant will be fully operational processing one tonne of end of life tyres each hour. The process will produce a high-grade pyrolysis oil and a char, both of which are then sold on to refineries and other industries meaning the process delivers zero waste.

Scott qualified as an accountant after graduating from the University of Hull. His career has taken him across the globe, in a diverse range of multi-million-pound businesses, where he has driven profitability, business performance and growth.

“This is another chapter in my career, and in the business, and over the coming months we will achieve our goals and see the plant become fully operational,” said Scott. “Challenges presented by the pandemic have delivered inevitable delays, but now we are looking forward to a strong future as we showcase the only truly circular way to dispose of end of life tyres in the UK, and champion the sustainability benefits that our solution brings.”

Mark Pepper, Carlton Forest Group CEO commented; “Scott’s career history means he is well placed to run this division of the group and I am sure he will achieve great things. He has already proved his capabilities and impressive business acumen, and I know that he will be a well-respected and successful Managing Director of our renewables division.”

Scott concluded; “End of life tyres remain the UK’s biggest waste problem and it was critically important that a solution that was sustainable, circular and brought added value was found. Our technology is set to revolutionise the way in which the UK deals with this particular waste stream and make a measurable difference in so many ways.”Delighted to Announce Appointment of New Managing Director
