processed by a single plant using GDT's 'Destructive Distillation' process. The raw material recovered includes:
Oil. (The oil can be used as a heating fuel, direct into some stationary diesel engines or is capable of further refinement into automotive or aviation fuels).
Carbon. (The carbon is a high grade product that can replace those sourced from fossil fuels).
Steel. (The steel is returned directly to tyre manufacturers for reuse).
of tyres recycled (assumes an average mix of car and truck tyres).
(typical) car tyre will yield 4 litres of oil, 4kg of carbon, 2kg of steel.
(typical) truck tyre will provide 27 litres of oil, 28 kg of carbon, 15 kg of steel.
(typical) oversize dump truck tyre will yield 1.6 tonnes of carbon, 0.8 tonne of steel and 1500 litres of oil.
