What is Tyre Pyrolysis?

Tyre pyrolysis is a chemical method for recycling scrap tires at high temperature in an oxygen-free atmosphere. Through tire pyrolysis, we can get pyrolysis oil, steel wires, carbon black and combustible gas. The great profit is one reason that more and more investors set up a tyre pyrolysis recycling plant. Moreover, it can greatly reduce waste, which is an urgent environmental problem in many countries and areas. Also, the rich and cheap raw materials will make your business more lucrative.

By the way, pyrolysis is also commonly used to process organic materials, which is known as biomass pyrolysis. Besides, the applications of pyrolysis can also convert municipal solid waste, plastic waste, oil sludge, etc. into usable oil and other safely disposable substances. In order to meet different requirements of customers, Beston Group Co., LTD. has developed batch, semi-continuous, fully continuous pyrolysis plant and even batch to continuous upgrading system to choose from. If you have interests, please contact us for help.

Steel Wire


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)

Whats is the Tire Pyrolysis Process?

Pre-treatment & Feeding

Feed the waste tire into the reactor manually or by an auto-feeder. If you use the automatic feeding system, you need to cut the tire into small pieces with a shredder, which is smaller than 20 mm. Also, the moisture content (less than 15%) of raw materials will influence the oil yield. We will equip dryers if you need them. After feeding, the inlet feeding door is then tightly sealed to ensure there are no gas leakages.


The reactor is then heated using wood, fuel gas, charcoal, or coal. The reactor is slowly heated and then it reaches a temperature of around 200 ℃, the process produces an oil gas. The best pyrolysis temperature is 300-350 ℃. Then the oil gas will go through a condensing-system where it turns into liquid oil. Meanwhile, the gas which cannot be liquefied is sent back into a combustion-system as fuel after desulphurization. Obviously, this method helps to save your fuel cost. In general, the combustible gas is enough or surplus. While the rest gas will be burnt or stored for later use.

During the pyrolysis process, you can also get steel wire and carbon black. In order to keep workers safe, the temperature should drop below 40℃. Of course, you can wait or use a water cooling system. More than that, Beston pyrolysis unit employs a fully-sealed discharging system to stop fly ash.


Moreover, there is a dedusting system to cool down and clean the off-gas to meet your local emission standard. It often includes water spray, ceramic ring adsorption, and activated carbon adsorption. Beston Group has developed mature technology so that we have tire pyrolysis plants in the UK, Canada, Romania, Jordan, South Africa, and other more 20 countries.
