Pyrolysis, or heat treatment without oxygen, is a thermochemical procedure used to break down organic material. Tyre pyrolysis operates similarly in the recycling sector: heat is applied to the feedstock under vacuum or at atmospheric pressure to break down entire or shred tyres into usable materials.
Pyrolysis is one of the various technologies for converting biomass into an intermediate liquid product that can be refined into drop-in hydrocarbon biofuels, oxygenated fuel additives, and petrochemical substitutes. Pyrolysis is the process of heating an organic material, such as biomass, without the presence of oxygen.
The Global Tire Pyrolysis System market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Michelin launches construction of its first tire pyrolysis plant. An inventive industrial innovation that recycles every component of a worn-out tire and serves as another example of Michelin Group’s push into sustainable materials.
A comprehensive recycling process that reuses every component of discarded tyres
The next-generation tyre recycling facility’s cutting-edge tyre pyrolysis techniques will help the circular economy. Tyres that are approaching the end of their useful lives will be picked up at the customer’s location and brought to the plant for recycling.
Everything in an end-of-life tyre may be recovered for reuse thanks to Enviro’s technology, which creates new, high-quality reusable resources including recovered carbon black, pyrolysis oil, gas and steel. According to current plans, the recovered materials will be utilised in numerous rubber-based products, including tyres, conveyor belts, and anti-vibration items. The remainder will be used directly by the plant to produce heat and power for internal usage.
With the help of its first recycling facility, Michelin will be able to provide a complete recycling solution, from collecting used tyres to utilising the recovered raw materials to create new goods. The VISION Concept, which highlights the Group’s commitment to using more sustainable materials in its tyres, is completely supported by the upcoming tyre pyrolysis plant.
Michelin has established itself as a uniting force for creating innovative partnerships across a wide variety of technological disciplines because it is aware that the pace and nature of innovation in this field call for new types of cooperation.
