Abstract

The French Institute of Petroleum has developed a process of valorisation of waste tires into fuels. The process consists in treating the whole tires with heavy hydrocarbons which transfer the heat for reaching the required temperature and dissolve the oligomers resulting from devulcanization and depolymerization reactions. The tire is converted into moderate amount of gas and gasoline and mainly into heavy oil loaded with finely dispersed carbon black. Results have been obtained on a large size pilot plant making the process directly applicable on the industrial scale.
