Every year, about 1.5 billion waste tires are produced globally. The disposal of end-of-life tires has become one of the serious environmental challenges facing the world today. In 2021, a fire broke out in a waste tire dumpsite in Kuwait. 7 million waste tires stored in 600,000 square meters burned in the open space, causing an ecological disaster. The main component of tires is rubber, which is composed of more than 200 materials and chemical components. Once burned, it will release a large amount of extremely carcinogens such as dioxins, phenols and hydrogen sulfide, causing damage to the human body’s central nervous system and respiratory system. Thick smoke will eventually fall to the surface and ocean with the atmosphere, entering the food chain and causing more serious harm. Governments around the world realize the importance of scrap tire recycling. Advancing tire recycling technology can help solve climate change.
In order to effectively solve the problem of waste tire disposal, pyrolysis technology has emerged among many technical routes with its ultimate recycling advantages. In an oxygen-free and anaerobic environment, the pyrolysis system decomposes organic materials such as rubber in waste tires into valuable products such as fuel oil, carbon black and steel wire through high-temperature pyrolysis.
Compared with traditional waste tire treatment methods, waste tire pyrolysis technology has the following advantages. First of all, pyrolysis technology can maximize the recycling of waste tires, reducing resource waste and land pollution. Secondly, pyrolysis technology can effectively reduce carbon emissions and meet the dual-carbon and circular economy requirements.
Pyrolysis technology also has a promising application as a sustainable solution for end-of-life tires. Fuel oil can be widely used in industry and transportation, replacing traditional fossil fuels and reducing dependence on limited energy. The carbon black and steel wire produced by pyrolysis technology can be used as raw materials for the production of rubber and steelmaking, realizing resource recycling.
In recent years, developed countries in Europe and the United States have been committed to promoting tire recycling technology to address climate change and environmental issues. In the aspect of policy, these countries have formulated strict regulations on waste tire management, requiring enterprises to sort, recycle and treat waste tires. At the same time, governments provide economic incentives and technical support to promote the development and application of pyrolysis technology. In the aspect of implementation, these countries has established waste tire recycling system, invested in large scale pyrolysis plant. Through cooperation between governments and enterprises, waste tires have been efficiently treated and recycled.
As a professional pyrolysis machine manufacturer, Niutech has research and develop pyrolysis technology for nearly 40 years. The whole pyrolysis technology and equipment won the National Science And Progress Adward, the highest award in Chinese science and technology. We have project cases in dozens of countries around the world, creating great environmental and economic benefits. In the future, Niutech will continue to promote the application of waste tire pyrolysis technology globally, helping realize the recycling of waste tires and promoting the process of environmental protection and sustainable development.
