The number of cars in Russia is increasing every year, while the number of used tires is also growing.

The main method of disposal - processing into crumb rubber - does not cover the full volume of secondary rubber-containing raw materials.

And although in recent years the rates of production of seamless pavements and asphalt from tire crumb have greatly increased, large volumes of used tires remain unused.

What happens to the rest of the raw materials? Basically, rubber simply accumulates in landfills, increasing their already off scale volume.

Recycling by pyrolysis is a modern way of recycling tires and other rubber goods. It is successfully used abroad, but in Russia it is not yet very popular.

How tires are recycled?

Pyrolysis is the most cost-effective way of processing rubber from used car tires and other rubber goods, while not polluting the environment with combustion gases.

It runs like this:

  • Tires are pre-divided into front and side tires using a bead cutter.
  • The cut tires are loaded into a special container (retort), which is sealed and placed in the oven.
  • The furnace heats up to 450 0C and the pyrolysis process begins, during which gas is released. When the decomposition of the raw material ends, the retort is removed and replaced with a new one.
  • After cooling down, which takes several hours, the container is unloaded, separating the carbonaceous residue from the metal cord.

The procedure differs from conventional combustion in the absence of oxygen, which is necessary for combustion.

Utilization and recycling of car tires

In this guide, I'll show you how to melt plastic at home. Remelting high density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic bottles and making them into blocks that can be used in a variety of ways.

We use and throw away a lot of plastic bottles every day ... Let's change that!

Dave Hackens is an amazing guy who has done a lot of videos about plastic recycling. He shows you how to collect, melt and process plastic items to create new things. However, if you just want to try recycling a few bottles, follow this quick guide.

Home Manual Casting Machines

Bench-top machines can be used for small-scale casting of plastic parts. It is a compact piece of equipment that will fit in any private workshop or garage. Plastic can be poured onto them in single or multiple molds, depending on the size and serial production. Units differ from industrial equipment only in small dimensions. The bench press is suitable for all polymers and is easy to operate.

Stages of house casting on the machine:

  • Installation of the device and the injection nozzle.
  • Setting the mold and lubricating it with silicone;
  • Loading polymer into the hopper;
  • Heating and stirring the material using a screw;
  • Pouring raw materials into mold;
  • Waiting for cooling;
  • Removing the plastic part.

Welding extruders can also be used in everyday life to hold together plastic parts to produce more complex products.

Making plastic products with your own hands is possible individually, as entertainment, or as a one-time need. And also in bulk, for sale or for subsequent production. For this, self-made forms and improvised means or specialized, home equipment are suitable. It is more profitable to entrust mass casting to specialists, since this requires expensive, bulky equipment and the work of experienced personnel.

DIY recycling equipment

At home, you can do without some pieces of equipment and simplify the technology as much as possible. But still, work will be impossible without a crusher and an extruder (granulator).

There are tons of building tips and materials on the internet. Let's consider the most suitable and universal schemes.

An article about tire pyrolysis: processing rubber from car tires into diesel fuel, including by hand, operating principle, price of pyrolysis plants and other equipment, contacts of their suppliers, as well as a description of the process.

Recently, due to the careful attitude to ecology and natural resources, natural wood has received a competitor in this field, fuel briquettes, also called Eurowood.

New solid fuel, essentially sawdust briquettes, has a higher calorific value, it is more convenient to transport and store it. To heat the stove with Euro wood, you do not need to buy additional equipment or consumables, the whole process follows the traditional scheme. All this makes sawdust in briquettes the most promising fuel for fireplaces and rustic stoves.

Pros and cons of using fuel briquettes

The advantages of the new fuel are clearly revealed when compared with classic firewood. The benefits should be discussed first:

  • High calorific value. When burning, compressed sawdust emit 2-3 times more heat per unit weight.
  • Increased burning time. Compared to ordinary wood, fuel briquettes last 1.5-2 times longer, which, together with the first advantage, allows you to save on heating.
  • Environmentally friendly and harmless. When creating, no chemical reagents are used, the very production of Eurowood utilizes part of the waste of woodworking factories.
  • Low resin release. The chimney needs to be cleaned 2 times less often than when burning with wood.
  • Less noise, smoke and embers flying to the sides. Sawdust briquettes burn out evenly, less smoke is emitted in the process, and after that there is not so much ash left as from ordinary firewood.
  • Convenience of storage and use. The shape of the briquettes allows you to spend a minimum of storage space, and it is also optimal for use in boilers with automatic fuel supply.
  • High density. It means that with the same volume, the mass of fuel will, on average, be 3 times higher than that of firewood. Convenient for transportation, the truck will carry more payload at a time.
  • Low moisture content. Such fuel from sawdust has a moisture content of about 10%, while dry wood has a moisture content in the range from 20 to 25%. Eurowoods have less useless water in weight, and less heat is spent on its evaporation.

Comparison of Eurodrive with other fuels Disadvantages:

The use of long-burning furnaces and boilers will increase the economic effect of the use of fuel blocks by about 2 times. It is possible to ensure the burning time from one load of fuel more than 12 hours. From here it became possible to smoothly move on to the next question: "How to properly heat with pressed sawdust?"

What are fuel briquettes

Fuel briquettes, which, depending on the equipment used for their production, can have different sizes and shapes, are obtained by pressing raw materials of natural origin. The most common raw materials used to make briquettes are:

  • waste of woodworking and logging - sawdust, shavings, tree bark, foliage and even needles;
  • waste from enterprises engaged in the processing of agricultural products (wheat, rice and buckwheat husks, sunflower husks);
  • straw, reed, small fractions of peat and coal;
  • poultry droppings formed in large quantities as a result of the activities of large poultry farms.
