Development of an alternative fuel from waste of used tires by pyrolysis

Abstract : The objective of this work is to get alternative fuel comparable with the available diesel in the market following the EN590. The fuel getting was via optimization of pyrolysis conditions which are temperature, heating rate (power of electrical resistance) and inert gas flow rate. The optimum values are 465°C, 650 Watts and without inert gas flow rate. Inert gas role is limited to purge the system for 30 minutes before start the pyrolysis to get rid of oxidative gases. The obtained product is comparable with the diesel as it has GCV 45 KJ/kg, low density of 0,85 and 7% tar content.
