Waste Tyre Pyrolysis Plant Project Report

1. Background

1.1 Waste Tyre- Black Pollution

As we all know, plastic waste is “White Pollution” because it is hard to degrade naturally. Similar to plastic waste, waste tyres are also hard for degradation. There are approximately more than 7 billion tons of scrap tyres abandoned each year across the world. They don’t only cover too much space, but also pose pollution to the environment, cause fires and threaten safety and health of people. Thus, how to dispose of the waste tyres properly and safely has become an urgent issue for the whole world. Hope this waste tyre pyrolysis plant project report can guide you in the waste tire recycling business.

1.2 Waste Tyre Recycling and Management

Now, there are many fast-developing countries in the global world. The number of the car has been increasing quickly as the country develops. Besides, it is one of the main suppliers of natural rubber in the world. So there are many tyre manufacturing companies in this country. Recent years, large tyre manufacturers in the developed countries tend to set up their factory to shorten the distance between the raw materials and production lines. As a result, it indirectly affects the number of waste tyres and this country is facing quite a serious problem of tyre disposing and recycling at present.

2. Introduction to Pyrolysis Plant

To simply dispose of those “black waste” is not enough for a sustainable development of society. Complying with the trend of turning waste into energy, people have worked out a perfect solution to dispose of and recycle waste tyres, which is called Pyrolysis.

Pyrolysis is a chemical thermal reaction through which the macromolecule and be turned into micromolecule under high temperature and oxygen-free environment. A pyrolysis plant is a waste recycling plant that uses this kind of technology to turn waste tyres into fuels.

2.1 Tyre Pyrolysis Process

Tyres are usually made of natural rubber or synthetic rubber, carbon black and various organic or inorganic additives which including the plasticiser, antiager, sulfur and zinc oxide. During the pyrolysis of waste tyres, the macromolecules which have an unsaturated bond in the backbone of the rubber will fracture and then the resultants will aggregate into multiple olefins. And then the volatile matters will be separated and form solid carbon. Generally, the final products are tyre oil, carbon black, steel wires and combustible gas.

2.2 Final Products

2.2.1 Tyre Oil

Tyre oil is a dark brown liquid fuel oil that you can use for the industrial and commercial purpose. It can be used as an alternative fuel oil in heavy machinery after being refined.

2.2.2 Carbon Black

Carbon black is light black amorphous carbon with a powdered form. It is an important industrial material that has wide uses in many aspects. It is the raw material to produce the black dye, Chinese ink, printing ink, paint and rubber fortifier, etc. Besides, it can also be used as the ingredient to produce electric cable jacketing, conveyor belt, carrier bands, doormats, black nylon bags, auto spare parts, plastic pipes, and industrial rubber products, etc.

2.2.3 Steel Wires

The steel wires inside of the tyre should be drawn by a wire drawing machine before feeding into the pyrolysis reactor. The steel wire can be recycled in the steelmaking factory and metallurgical plant.

3. Site Layout Planning

To do a site layout planning, you need to consider the following factors to make sure the preliminary site construction smooth.

3.1 Principle of Unity

In the design and improvement of the layout, the people, machine, materials and other elements of each process must be taken into consideration, organic combination and full balance. If there is no unified coordination, the production process can be divided easily, which will prolong the stagnation time and reduce the production efficiency.

3.2 The Shortest Distance Rule

Consider process sequence and at the same time you should pay attention to the flow of production in the process of production materials, try to shorten the production process flow of the production of raw materials, avoid cross appeared in the process of production of raw materials and products in circulation, jam phenomenon.

3.3 The Principle of the Flow of People and Logistics

Under the premise of ensuring reasonable operation space and maintenance space in layout design, it is necessary to follow the principle of moving distance and moving time. The shorter the distance, the smaller the cost and time of material handling.

3.4 Safety Principle

When designing the layout, we should start from the convenience of transportation, and consider how to give full play to the role of transportation and make the logistics unimpeded. Otherwise, there will be some unexpected problems, such as sudden road blockage, personnel equipment can not arrive in time to deal with the scene.
