Tyres to Bio Diesel.
After many years of research and development of this new Thermolysis process, True Alternative Energy is convinced that this approach is the most efficient and cost-effective way to treat waste rubber tyres and plastics such as PE and PP. The design is based on the old Pyrolysis process that has been refined and improved upon to create the Becker system. The name Pyro has been changed to Thermo as there is no fire or combustion used with in the Becker system. This was made possible due to a totally new designed sealing system. Secondly the reactor is stationary preventing dust carry over to the diesel oil or from emanating from the plant into the atmosphere.
The totally sealed, PLC controlled continuous process is energy self-sufficient once operating 8 hours after starting up, the syngas produced during the process is utilised as fuel for the thermal cycle. This is after the gas is rigorously scrubbed to remove any detrimental gases such as hydrogen sulphide and mercaptans.
The tyres are processed to ensure ease of feeding firstly by the removal of any metal and then cutting into 5-30mm rubber chips, this ensures the ease of feeding and ensures optimum yield of commodities are achieved.
- The yield process is:
- Bio Diesel 55%. – 8680 litres based on 15 Tons
- Char 40% – 6,000 kg / day
- Syngas 5% – 750 kg / day = 31.2 kg / hr
