Renewable Fuels for Your Municipality
Scrap Rubber to Oil’s (SR2O) facilities and our technology offer an environmentally friendly method to recycle scrap tires with very attractive economic returns.
Our pyrolysis technology is scalable with an initial capacity of approximately 200 tons per day–7.4 million passenger tires per year. Based upon a 90% uptime, a base set of equipment produces the following estimated materials:
- Approximately 1.3 gallons of oil per tire to an ASTM 2892 test specification.
This would be equivalent to approximately 8.6 million gallons of oil per year.
- Based on feedstock agreements, approximately 8% to 11% of a tire’s weight would be steel. This would create approximately 160 to 220 lbs of high quality steel per ton of feedstock.
- An estimated 6.4lbs of a commodity grade carbon, milled to a 325 mesh, is recovered from a 20 lb passenger tire. This would be equivalent to approximately 21,300 tons of carbon per year at 90% up-time.
Additional refining and scrubbing of the carbon powder, results in enhanced product quality and improves the profitability for the carbon. Typical Markets that can be serviced with the carbon could be activated carbon for filtration, printer ink and toner, rubberized automotive products, as well as nanotechnology and aerospace fields.
The highly efficient and effective SR2O process allows the generation of electricity that exceeds the plant requirements. This is in addition to the non-condensable gases generated in the process that is used as fuel to maintain the operation of the pyrolysis units. This reduces the overall utility costs for the ongoing operations of the facility.
A typical site layout would include two main buildings, one for additional feedstock processing, with the other one being used for processing the feedstock to extract the oils, gases, carbon, and steel. These two buildings would be approximately 18,000 sq.ft. under roof for the feedstock processing facility and about 30,000 sq.ft. under roof for the extraction facility. These buildings would house all the support space to make the site virtually “stand alone”. Typical functions that would be housed on site, would include: Process Control rooms, Quality Control Lab, Employee Lunch/Break room, restrooms with showers.
- A tire’s physical structure, durability, and heat-retaining characteristics make these stockpiles a potential threat to human health and the environment. The curved shape of a tire allows rainwater to collect and creates an ideal habitat for rodents and mosquitoes.
- Prone to heat retention, tires in stockpiles also can ignite, creating tire fires that are difficult to extinguish and can burn for months, generating unhealthy smoke and toxic oils.
- Illegal tire dumping pollutes ravines, woods, deserts, and empty lots. For these reasons, most states have passed scrap tire regulations requiring proper management.
