Carbolytic Materials Co., a startup founded by former Monsanto employees, produces an alternative for carbon black and aims to consolidate its operations as it tries to expand. The company is optimistic about plans for growth because it touts a greener process in producing carbon black from used tires. "We're planning a rapid expansion from this point because the market is getting accustomed to us and our product," said CMC CEO Ray Riek.
