About Tire Drived Energy
Scrap tires are used as fuel because of their high heating value. Using scrap tires is not recycling, but is considered a beneficial use — it is better to recover the energy from a tire rather than landfill it. In 2003, 130 million scrap tires were used as fuel (about 45% of all generated) — up from 25.9 million (10.7% of all generated) in 1991.
Tires can be used as fuel either in shredded form - known as
tire-derived fuel(TDF) — or whole, depending on the type of combustion device. Scrap tires are typically used as a supplement to traditional fuels such as coal or wood. Generally, tires need to be reduced in size to fit in most combustion units. Besides size reduction, use of TDF may require additional physical processing, such as de-wiring.
In terms of waste management, waste that cause environmental problem can be transformed into different materials through recovery. Recovery from ELT can be reviewed under two main headings: energy recovery and material recovery.
Whole or shredded ELTs can be used in civil engineering projects such as embankments, backfill for walls, road insulation, field drains, erosion control/rainwater runoff barriers, wetland and marsh establishment, crash barriers, jetty bumpers and sea breakwaters. ELTs can also be converted into ground or crumb rubber that can then be used for rubber-modified asphalt (resulting in reduced traffic noise), running tracks, sports fields, ground cover under playgrounds, molded rubber products and mulch in landscape applications. Tires are lightweight, permeable, good insulators, shock and noise absorbent and long lasting.
ELTs can be a low-cost source of fuel when located near a prominent fuel consumer. Substituting ELTs in place of new raw materials reduces associated environmental and economic costs, such as commercially viable exploration and mining for fossil fuels and other virgin raw materials, the associated land-use impact and Tyre derived fuel, as one of the leading options for ELTs, which are mainly used in cement kilns, but also in fuel intensive industries such as thermal power stations, pulp and paper mills, steel mills and industrial boilers as supplementary fuel. Tires have a high energy content and are an equal or better source of energy than many other solid fuels. This, alongside rising energy costs and increased environmental awareness in recent years, has led to an increase in use of ELTs.
Landfill is considered the last option. Even if safe management practices are in place, ELT landfilling and dumping are unsustainable practices that have a significant land-use impact, and are a missed opportunity to gain benefits from recovery and reuse of ELTs. The tire industry has one legislation driven target with regard to ELTs: to prevent them from going to landfill. European countries are working on a solution to overcome this problem in recent years.
An alternative solution class for the thermal treatment of ELTs is pyrolysis which is an endothermic process that induces the thermal decomposition of feed materials without the addition of any reactive gases, such as air or oxygen. Pyrolysis of ELTs offers an environmentally and economically attractive method for transforming ELTs into useful products, heat and electrical energy.
Potential uses include upgrading to commercial carbon black, specialized carbon blacks, printing ink, activated carbon, and fuel. Carbon black is used for producing rubber goods, wheel tire (inner and outer), cable, conveyor belt and hose. Sometimes its market is not too much and it has low selling price. Therefore, it will be also burned and used for electricity generation.
The essential product of ELT pyrolysis process is pyrolysis oil referred as fuel oil which is used as a fuel component. The fuel oil produced by pyrolysis will be used for generating electricity by generators.
Steel used in tires is made of high carbon steel. Approximately 25% of the vehicle tire can be defined as wire or scrap wire. As a result of the ELT recovery process, high quality scrap steel is obtained. This compressed scrap steel will be sold to the steel rolling mills and casting industry.
It is a gas fuel and planned to be obtained by 10% after pyrolysis process carried out in the system. The calorific value is higher than the natural gas. It contains Hydrogen, CO2, Methane, Ethane, Propane, Propene, Butane and other hydrocarbons in its structure. The gas produced will be used for heating the reactors.
