Carbon-based wastes represent a promising and untapped renewable energy source. Their use as feedstock for the production of carbon and fuel is consistent with the cycle of carbon creation and assimilation. It’s estimated that the United States generates from 1.5 to 2 billion tons of organic waste every year including municipal solid, bio-solids, animal, green, construction and demolition, pulp and paper, plastics, auto shredding and agricultural waste. The nation also disposes of 300 million used tires each year. Approximately one-third of these materials are generated in our local communities and collected and transported to landfills.

Tire recycling technology thermally de-polymerizes waste tires (and/or organic materials) within an oxygen-free, externally heated reaction vessel in a temperature and pressure-controlled environment and is commonly referred to as pyrolysis. Waste whole tires (feedstock) are inserted into the reaction vessel at a controlled rate. The reaction vessel is maintained at a temperature of sufficient magnitude to insure complete thermal decomposition of volatile components. Oxidation or “burning” does not occur because the process maintains an oxygen-free environment. This is a closed system that uses sealed joints and negative pressure to eliminate unwanted emissions and recovers 99%+ of the waste material. Complete control of time, temperature, and pressure insure product decomposition. This technology operates in a batch mode and thermally decomposes the whole tire to its basic components of carbon, oil, steel and syngas, a non-condensable gas.

tire breakdownA typical domestic passenger tire in the US weighs approximately 22 pounds. The raw materials of a tire are recovered through the tire recycling technology.

  • Carbon Black: N500-N700 spec
  • Fuel Oil: #4 marine diesel
  • Steel
  • Syngas: used to generate electricity to offset operating costs.
