Energy Recovery

Used tyres can be used as an additional or alternative fuel for cement production or for the production of electricity and steam in cogeneration units, due to its high heating power, which is around 5.700 kcal/kg, slightly below coal, which is 6.800 kcal/kg.

The use of tyres as an alternative fuel also allows the reducion of emissions from the tyre's biomass combustion, comparing with fossil fuel, due to the natural rubber present on the tyres.
