What is Pyrolysis Plant for Sale in South Africa?

Pyrolysis plant in South Africa uses the process of pyrolysis to convert waste materials such as tyres, plastics, and oil sludge into valuable products. Pyrolysis is the thermal decomposition process without oxygen that breaks down complex organic molecules into simpler compounds. The plant heats the waste at high temperatures, causing it to pyrolyze and convert it into three main products: pyrolysis oil, carbon black, and combustible gas. It is worth mentioning that steel wires are also produced when handling tyres. These products can be used as alternative energy sources or raw materials for various industries in South Africa. Pyrolysis plant for sale in South Africa helps with waste management. It reduces the disadvantages caused by the random disposal of these wastes. At the same time, the products of the plant also reduce dependence on fossil fuels. This contributes to environmental sustainability.

Waste Management Issues in South Africa-Tyre/Plastic/Oil Sludge


South Africa suffers from inappropriate disposal of waste tires. Scrap tires are often sent to landfill or incinerated. This results in the release of harmful pollutants and toxins into the air, soil, and water. In addition, burning tires releases harmful substances that cause air pollution and pose health risks.


South Africa has a serious plastic pollution problem, especially along the coast. Single-use plastic items, such as bottles, bags, and food packaging, are a major source of plastic pollution. Inappropriate waste management and inadequate recycling infrastructure are the main causes of plastic pollution.

Oil Sludge

Oil refineries and the petrochemical industry are sources of oil sludge pollution in South Africa. If not disposed of properly, oil sludge can contaminate soil and water resources. This poses environmental and health risks. Proper disposal methods are essential to mitigate oil sludge contamination.

How to Get Pyrolysis Oil in South Africa?

Pyrolysis plants in South Africa go through four systems to obtain pyrolysis oil. Including pyrolysis system, condensation system, dust removal system and slag removal system. The following are the roles these systems play in the pyrolysis process.

NO.1 Pyrolysis

The pyrolysis reactor rotates under the action of the driving device. This achieves uniform heating of the material. The raw material continuously absorbs heat in the reactor, and when it reaches the pyrolysis temperature, it begins to crack to produce oil and gas.

NO.2 Condensing

The high-temperature oil gas is liquefied when it is cooled. Then it becomes fuel oil, which is stored in the fuel tank. The non-liquefiable combustible gas is purified and stabilized by the water seal and then sent to the furnace to provide fuel for the heating of the reactor.

NO.3 De-dusting

The high-temperature flue gas inside the combustion chamber is first cooled by the flue condenser, and then the cooled flue gas is introduced into the dust removal tower through the induced draft fan, and then discharged through the chimney after dust removal and odor removal.

NO.4 Discharging

The first spiral slagging device transports the carbon black in the furnace. After that, the system transports the carbon black in the furnace to the slag box or a designated location using a water-cooled slag discharger.

FAQs About Environmental Performance of Pyrolysis Plant in South Africa

A: The waste water in the water seal and spray tower can be evaporated at high temperatures in the firing chamber and furnace. Additionally, the residual oil in the residual oil tank can be directly re-entered into the main furnace for re-cracking or directly mixed into the cracking oil after stratification. High-temperature flue gas emissions will be discharged up to standard after exhaust gas treatment. What’s more, no waste particles will be discharged during the whole process.

1. Enter the main furnace and then react;
2. Connect the water pipe to the firing chamber and add nozzles for combustion;
3. After centralized collection, entrust an external sewage treatment system for treatment.

A: Exhaust gas volume varies depending on model selection. The exhaust gas is mainly composed of two parts, most of which are produced by fuel combustion and reactor heating. Besides, a small part is produced by direct combustion of excess pyrolysis gas. What’s more, exhaust gas mainly contains sulfur compounds, nitrogen oxides, dust, carbon monoxide, and carbon dioxide.

A: For the standard model of the machine, the exhaust gas treatment can only reduce the temperature and remove dust. However, we are equipped with high-end exhaust gas treatment. This requires customers to choose according to the exhaust emission standards of the project location. After matching, it can meet the highest European emission standards.
