Plastic & Tyre Pyrolysis
Plastic pyrolysis or tire pyrolysis is: the process of converting waste plastic/tires into industrial fuels like pyrolysis oil, carbon black and hydrocarbon gas.
Plastic & Tyre pyrolysis: Input-output ratios ratios
|Waste mixed plastic scrap||1000kgs|| - 650 to 900 lit of Pyrolysis Oil|
- 50 to 100 Kg of Hydrocarbon Gas
- 50 to 70 Kg of carbon Black
|Nylon Scrap Tyres||1000kgs|| - 450 to 500 lit of Pyrolysis Oil|
- 100 to 120 Kg of Hydrocarbon Gas
- 300 to 350 Kg of carbon Black
|Radial Scrap Tyres||1000kgs|| - 400 to 450 lit of Pyrolysis Oil|
- 80 to 100 Kg of Hydrocarbon Gas
- 275 to 325 Kg of carbon Black
- 80 to 100 kgs of Mild steel wire scrap
Variety of polymer waste material is suitable as a raw material. Given below is the list of suitable plastic raw materials for pyrolysis:
- Waste Plastic
- Electronic scrap
- Mixed plastic (HDPE, LDPE, PE, PP, Nylon, Teflon, PS, ABS, FRP etc)
- Mixed waste plastic from waste paper mill
- Multi Layered Plastic
- Waste Tyres
- Plastic or rubber parts from vehicles
- Waste engine oils etc.
In pyrolysis as a process, the polymer waste is not burned, instead it is broken down into usable finished products like Pyrolysis Oil, Hydrocarbon Gas and Charcoal. In case of plastic/tyre waste management, pyrolysis is better alternative compared to incineration or dumping. Incineration is burning of waste which leads to loss of valuable energy from polymer waste. Dumping of polymer waste is known to cause land pollution. By pyrolysis of polymer waste, it is possible to recover value from waste in the form of Pyrolysis oil, Hydrocarbon gas and charcoal.
