Waste tire pyrolysis plant use high-temperature pyrolysis principle to crack oil gas from various wastes such as used tires, waste plastics, rubber, medical waste, etc. After the pyrolysis process, these wastes can eventually be transformed into useful resources such as fuel oil, carbon black, etc. These regenerated resources can ease energy shortages and create enormous economic benefits. Fuel oil has always been a hot demand around the world. So there is no doubt that investing in waste tire pyrolysis plant is profitable.

The end product of waste tire pyrolysis plant has a good sales market and a wide range of applications

1. Fuel oil

The main product produced by waste tire pyrolysis plant is fuel oil, and the oil yield rate can reach 45%-55%. It is widely used as fuel for iron plants, power plants, cement factories, brick plants and so on. It can also be reprocessed into diesel by the use of DOING waste oil distillation machine to achieve a wider range of applications and higher profits.

2. Carbon black

Carbon black can be used for building clay bricks or as a fuel. If further processed by DOING carbon black grinding machine, carbon black can be further processed into N220, N330 carbon black, which has higher value and wider application. In addition, it can also press the ball to burn.

3. Steel wire

The steel wire can be sold directly or recycled to produce new steel products.

Economic profit analysis

Waste Tire Pyrolysis Plant Profit Analysis (take a 10-ton machine as an example)

Operating cost/day

Used tires

10 tons * 80 US dollars/ton = 800 US dollars

Heating fuel
(Choose one of the fuels)

1) Coal: 0.4 tons * 125 US dollars/ton = 50 US dollars
2) Fuel: 0.4 tons * $490/ton = $196
3) Diesel: 0.3 tons * $740/ton = $222
4) Natural gas: 150m3 * 0.35 USD/m3 = 52.5 USD

Power consumption

20Kw/h = 30 U.S. dollars

Water consumption

Water is recycled and almost no consumption


3 persons * 23 U.S. dollars = $ 69



4 tons * $490/ton = $1960

Carbon black

3 tons: (1) Direct selling, *60 US dollars/ton = 180 US dollars
    (2) Milling, *185 USD/ton = 555 USD

Steel wire

1.5 tons * 120 US dollars/ton = 180 US dollars

Profit/day (calculated on the basis of burning fuel oil and carbon black)
