Prospective of Macedonia for treatment and recycling of tire waste with pirolitic proces
Perspektiva Makedonije za tretman i reciklažu otpadnih guma pirolitičkim procesom
The automotive industry is one of the ever-developing branches of modern society and therefore collecting and recycling of old tires must not be ignored. It must be taken into consideration that tire waste is decomposing at an extremely low pace under the influence of climate factors, that waste from used tires not only is covering large areas, but there is also a possibility of spontaneous fire that is usually long-lasting and emits gasses that have negative effect on human health. Tires are made of complex polymeric materials and contain chemical additives. When burning tires on an open field highly toxic and cancerous organic compounds are being released (biphenyl, anthracene, fluoranthene and other toxins). Pyrolysis is a process that offers sustainable management of this type of waste which in continuation is to be explained in detail.
