Pyrolysis Plant FAQ /Technology
Waste tyre pyrolysis is a technology heats whole or shredded tires into an atmosphere in the absence of oxygen (means reactor in industry) when the temperature elevated to about 400degree celsius to 450 degree Celsius. The waste tyre will vaporize. These vapors can be burned directly to produce power or condensed into an oily tyre liquid, generally used as a fuel. The oil gas which cannot be condensed will be collected. They are also an energy which can be burned. Also there will be some solid carbon black generated. The carbon black is also an energy.As the waste tyre contains steel wire; process of waste tyre process will generate steel wire. When performed well all the process of the tyre pyrolysis is very clean and has nearly no emissions or waste. The properties of the gas, liquid, and solid output depends on types of feedstock used and the process conditions. For instance whole tires contain fibers and steel. Shredded tires have most of the steel and sometimes most of the fiber removed. Processes can be either batch or continuous. The energy required to drive the decomposition of the rubber include using directly fired fuel (like a gas oven), electrical induction (like an electrically heated oven) or by microwaves (like a microwave oven). Sometimes a catalyst is used to accelerate the decomposition. The choice of feedstock and process can impact the value of the finished products.
