Tyre Pyrolysis

Tyre pyrolysis is a process of converting waste tires into fuel oil. Styrene-butadiene copolymer is the most commonly used synthetic polymer used in production of tyres. This polymer when subjected to pyrolysis temperatures of exceeding 350 Deg C, breaks down into smaller hydrocarbons of fuel oil and hydrocarbon gas.

Given below is the mass balance (input-output ratio) of tyre pyrolysis.
