“Technology Evaluation and Economic Analysis of Waste Tire Pyrolysis, Gasification, and Liquefaction” by the State of California Integrated Waste Management Board
"Pyrolysis, gasification, and liquefaction (PGL) represent a viable alternative for the disposal of scrap tires (also referred to as "waste tires" in this report). These technologies are currently used for the conversion of carbonaceous materials more extensively in Europe and Japan than in California, but may become more important as the supplies of natural fuels become depleted. The objective of this report was to assess the technological, environmental, and economic features of the application of PGL to process scrap tires.
"The ability to produce a range of products can add to the marketability of a PGL system. Products resulting from PGL processes include electricity, chemicals, and diesel fuel, as well as residual carbon black. The products can be used to expand the current uses of scrap tires that include retreading, civil engineering applications, and TDF. Estimates were made of the potential value of scrap tires transformed by PGL in terms of electricity, fuels, and other products. It was found that a hypothetical tire PGL facility with a capacity of 5 million tires per year can produce a gross revenue of over $13.2 million per year, from the combined sales of $9.4 million from synthetic diesel fuel, $1.25 million from the sale of process heat at natural gas equivalent prices, $1.7 million from the sale of off-peak electricity, and $0.8 million from the sale of the recovered steel. On a per-tire basis, the product costs ranged from $2.63 for gasification to $1.29 for liquefaction. Capital costs for PGL facilities were found to range from $621 to $828 per metric ton per year."
