According to the US Department of Agriculture report “Pyrolysis is the warming of a material, in the absence of oxygen. Since no oxygen is involved, the material doesn’t combust but all chemical compounds (i.e. cellulose, hemicellulose etc.) which make up the material thermally break into combustible gases & charcoal. Many of the combustible gases can be reduced into a liquid, known as pyrolysis oil, though there are present permanent gases (CO2, CO, H2, light hydrocarbons).”
The following is an excerpt on auto tire recycling from Vulcan Systems: “Americans throw away over 300M tires each year. Most states have forbidden discarding tires into landfills due to space-related concerns and the air & methane brought about during the disposal. Another system, burning, is dejected due to the discharge of carcinogens and other toxins into the air, as well as starting fires that are hard to extinguish, often smoldering for days. Thankfully, junk tires can be recycled via another method – pyrolysis – which involves braking them down into their original materials.
In the system of pyrolysis, tires are heated with an absence of. The tires melt its polymers break down into tiny molecules which eventually vaporize & leave the reactor. The vapors are finally burned to generate power or condensed into an oily liquid that can be used as fuel. Greater molecules that can’t be condensed continue as a gas and are used to supply heat to facilitate this process. The minerals & carbon in the tire (nearly 40% of the weight) are extracted as a solid. The steel wiring in the tire is removed using magnets and are then recycled. The left-over materials are a carbonaceous char, which then can be converted into carbon black. Carbon black is utilized in the making of new tires & other rubber-related goods. It can also be utilized as a fuel source in generating power and kilns.
Tire pyrolysis produces many different products, each with unique benefits:
- Tire oil can a useful source for fuel
- Carbon black can be utilized as a chemical strengthener in rubber materials or as a coloring agent
- The steel wire is able to be sold as scrap
Did you know that a 20 pound tire creates 5-9 lbs. of carbon 1.5-2.5 gallons of fuel oil, 50,000+ Btu of gas, and 2-3 lbs. of scrap steel.” The complete white paper is available here.
