Abstract





Pyrolysis,

Waste tyres,

Fixed bed reactor,

Oil yield

One of the major enviromental problems around the world is disposal of waste tyres without any purpose. Disposal of waste tyres is an increasing enviromental problem. Also because of high content of valuable chemicals and other compounds hidden in the waste tyres, disposal of them is an economical problem as well. Pyrolysis is a thermochemical process that can be used for recovery of the valuable chemicals in the waste tyre. Pyrolysis is a recycling process in which, liquid product can be used as a fuel directly or can be mixed with petroleum refined oils. Derived gaseous product can also be used as a fuel and solid product can be considered as a fuel and low grade carbon black. In this work, granulated waste tyres have been pyrolyzed in a fixed bed reactor under different conditions of temperature, heating rate and inert purging gas (N2) flow rate. The purpose of the study was to optimize the pyrolysis parameters in order to produce the highest amount of oil. 400°C, 450°C and 500°C were selected and the maximum yield of liquid product was observed at 450°C. Among the heating rates of 10°C/min, 15°C/ min and 20°C/min; 10°C/min was the parameter that gave maximum oil yield. And while working at 450°C and 10°C/min; N2(g) flow rate was examined by using 0.5 L/min, 1 L/min and 1.5 L/min. The maximum oil yield was observed at 1 L N2(g) /min. According to the results of the study; at 450°C, with a heating rate of 10°C/min and 1 L N2(g)/min gave the maximum yield of oil, which is 53.33 wt.%. The pyrolytic oil from waste tyre had the Gross Calorific Value of 42.6 MJ/kg which is very close to that of commercial diesel no 2 (around 42-46 MJ/kg). The pyrolytic oil produced is a promising fuel and can be used as a source of energy after some future work for make it suitable for use in vehicles or in other areas like factories or houses etc.

09/03/2022 Reviewer Awards: The reviewers are the anonymous heroes of the publishing society. Reviewing manuscripts is not an easy task but it is critical to the advancement of scientific knowledge. Even if authors take credit for publishing papers, the recognition of the reviewers are highly limited for their work. Therefore, our journal announces the reviewers that participated in editorial processes of the submitted articles in a yearly basis. Now, we expand our efforts to appreciate the valuable contribution of our reviewers and start to give Outstanding Reviewer Awards and Best Review Awards.


More info can be found at Reviewer Awards section. 


29/12/2021 Best Paper Award: According to the Advisory Board decision, the paper authored by Sahar Ismail, Wassim Raphael, Emmanuel Durand entitled as “Case study of the Beirut port explosion using 3D laser scan and nonlinear finite element model” is awarded the 2021 Best Paper Award of Research on Engineering Structures and Materials (RESM). We congratulate the authors and wish them a continued success.  



29/12/2021 Most Cited Paper Award: According to the Editorial Board evaluation, the paper authored by Sinan Kutluay, Orhan Baytar, Ömer Şahin entitled as “Adsorption kinetics, equilibrium and thermodynamics
of gas-phase toluene onto char produced from almond shells" is awarded the 2021 Most Cited Paper Award of Research on Engineering Structures and Materials (RESM). We congratulate the authors and wish them a continued success.
