How do we produce oil from waste plastics and tires
Here we introduce you the pyrolysis machine, it can help you produce energy from scrap tires and plastic, feel confused, right? See the details below, it’s renewable energy equipment to derive fuel oil energy from MSW include waste tyre, plastic and used engine oil.
First, let’s see the working principle of pyrolysis machine. It is called pyrolysis technology. Pyro=heat, lysis=breakdown into parts. Pyrolysis is chemical reaction. This reaction involves molecular breakdown of larger molecules into smaller molecules in presence of heat. Pyrolysis is also known as thermal cracking, cracking, thermolysis, depolymerization, etc. The simplest example of pyrolysis is cooking in which complex food molecules are broken down into smaller & easily digestible molecules.
Now let’s move back to the tyre and plastic pyrolysis reaction. Waste plastic and tire are long chain molecules or polymer hydrocarbons. Pyrolysis of waste plastic or tire takes place in absence of oxygen, at about 350-550 degree C and reaction time is about 15-45 minutes. After that, there will be Pyrolysis Oil, Carbon Black and Hydrocarbon Gas as machine running. End products are used as industrial fuels for producing heat, steam or electricity. Pyrolysis plant is also known as: pyrolysis unit, plastic to fuel industry, tire to fuel industry, plastic and tire recycling unit etc.
End products application:
1. Fuel oil: Used as heating material in many industries, such as cement factory, glass factory, electric power factory, rolling mill, etc. Also can add into heavy oil
generator to produce electricity. Or sell it into oil refining factory further process.
2. Carbon black: A. Make it become carbon pellet or briquette, for burning like coal
B. Further process it into granule, sell to plastic factory used as base material for making pipes, cable jacket, etc.
3. Steel wire: Sell it to iron and steel factory directly, if separate steel wire from tire before pyrolysis, can sell around 500-600USD per ton.
4. Waste gas: Recycled into furnace to heat reactor instead of fuel material.
In conclude, waste to energy pyrolysis plant is a 100% recycling project, all the final products have certain value. We also supply customer profit analysis according to you local condition, very glad to serve you anytime!
