Feasibility study for thermal treatment of solid tire wastes in Bangladesh by using pyrolysis technology
Islam, M.R., Joardder, M.U.H., Hasan, S.M., Takai, K., & Haniu, H. (2011) Feasibility study for thermal treatment of solid tire wastes in Bangladesh by using pyrolysis technology. Waste Management, 31(9-10), pp. 2142-2149.
In this study on the basis of lab data and available resources in Bangladesh, feasibility study has been carried out for pyrolysis process converting solid tire wastes into pyrolysis oils, solid char and gases. The process considered for detailed analysis was fixed-bed fire-tube heating pyrolysis reactor system. The comparative techno-economic assessment was carried out in US$ for three different sizes plants: medium commercial scale (144 tons/day), small commercial scale (36 tons/day), pilot scale (3.6 tons/day). The assessment showed that medium commercial scale plant was economically feasible, with the lowest unit production cost than small commercial and pilot scale plants for the production of crude pyrolysis oil that could be used as boiler fuel oil and for the production of upgraded liquid-products.
