Before investing in tyre recycling business, you may wonder whether you can get money for recycling tires. The answer could turn out to be yes. So how can recycle tires for cash? Actually, there is more than one way, for example, government subsidies, selling the things made from recycled tires, etc. Keep reading for more details.
It is estimated that more than 250,000,000 tires are thrown away annually. What’s worse, it is non-bio-degradable to consume valued space in landfills and it is harmful to the underground water, soil, etc. In addition, the landfill sites in many countries and areas have been worn out. So it is urgent to reduce waste tires in an eco-friendly way. That’s why some governments have a policy or financial support for tyre recycling. For example, the South African government imposed a levy of $223.20/ton, plus a 14% value-added tax for new tires for recycling. And they also offer subsidies to investors to set up and run a tire recycling plant. We had three tyre pyrolysis plants installed in South Africa in the past years. Except for South Africa, we also have successful cases in the UK, Indonesia, Turkey, Brazil, Jordan, etc.
Products Made From Recycled Tyres
Selling products made from recycled tire should be the main part of the tire recycling business profit. What can you get from recycling tires? Steel wire (8-15%), carbon black (30-35%), pyrolysis oil (35-45%) and combustible gas (8-15%). You can sell these products directly or you can reprocess these products for a higher value.
|Pyrolysis oil||35-45%||1. Sell directly
2. Reprocessed into diesel or gasoline by oil distillation machine
3. Use as fuel directly
|Carbon Black||30-35%||1. Sell directly
2. Reprocessed into high-quality carbon by carbon black grinding machine
3. Making carbon brick by briquetting equipment
|8-15%||1. Sell directly
2. Making steel bloom by hydraulic press-packing
|Combustible Gas||8-15%||Alternative fuel to heat the reactor (self-sufficient pyrolysis process)|
1.The tyre pyrolysis oil after distilling can be used in industries such as steel, iron and boiler factories, ceramics, power, chemical industries.
2.The carbon black is used as construction material or low-grade fuel, or as filler in the rubber industry, paints and coatings, ink production and other industrial applications.
More than that, the tire recycling plant is good for the environment. So you may get old tires or rubber products at a low price or free to lower your cost. That is to say, you can definitely recycle tires for cash while saving the planet.
