Pyrolysis is a form of gasification that turns waste into energy rich fuels by heating the waste under controlled conditions.
While the processes are similar to other technologies, there are some differences:
Pyrolysis involves heating waste to high temperatures (between 400C and 800C) in the absence of oxygen, the absence of oxygen reduces the emissions produced and causes the waste to decompose into solids and gases that are either condensed into fuel oils or gases; ‘Syngas’, pyrolysis liquid and solid char are produced.
- The syngas can be used to generate electricity.
- Pyrolysis liquid can be used as a fuel or to make new products such as ethanol.
- The char can be used as a solid fuel or as a nutrient additive to improve soils.
- Pyrolosis can be applied to a range of waste materials including tyres.
In most common systems, prior to the Pyrolysis process, tyres are shredded and passed through a sorting system which uses magnets to extract the steel bands. These are then removed for recycling.
The oils produced by the process can be used as a gasoline additive to enhance octane, while the heavier oils can be refined into #2, #4 or #6 fuel oil.
EcoEnergy Ventures have sourced a patented, state of the art, oil conversion technology that converts plastic and tires, using pyrolysis, to produce oil, carbon black, syngas, and steel. Unlike other Pyrolysis technologies, the use of electromagnetic induction pyrolysis facilitates a fast, stable process that essentially has no environmental impact.
Our system has been in development for over 8 years, tyres do not have to be preprocessed and this system produces a high volume of high quality oil. The key to the system is the three stages of process refinement leading to high quality oil, reviewed & approved by independent certified laboratory). The oil produced is certified as a diesel replacement product.
The entire system is a closed loop that sorts vapors and gases throughout the entire process. At no time are there any gases or vapors emitted into the atmosphere. The Process has been reviewed and validated by the independent engineering firm Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC a $4B Revenue per year public company). The Californian EPA and other international agencies have approved the technology.
The system is scalable and has low maintenance issues due to a modular design.
There are over 120 basic systems of this type throughout Asia & the EU with 14 installations that use electricity as a power source (off gases do not need to be flared off).
