Tire derived Fuel Market - Overview
Tire-derived fuel (TDF) is fuel derived from all kinds of scrap tires. It may include whole tires or tires processed into uniform, flowable pieces that satisfy specifications of end-users. Scrap tires are an excellent source of fuel due to their high heat value. The heating value of an average sized passenger tire ranges between 13,000 Btu/lb and 15,000 Btu/lb compared to about 10,000 Btu/lb and 12,000 Btu/lb for coal. Another major reason for using tire fuels is to save fuel costs.
Tire-derived fuels offer several advantages over traditional fuels. Tires produce the same amount of energy as oil and 25% more energy than coal. The ash residues from TDF may contain a lower heavy metals content than some coals. TDF is less expensive than fossil fuels. The combustion of tires as fuel decreases the number of scrap tires disposed in landfills or stockpiles. TDF decreases the emissions of sulfur oxides (SOx) when used to replace high-sulfur coal in cement kilns.
In terms of consumption, the U.S. is a major country of the tire-derived fuel market. In the U.S., more than 250 million scrap tires were generated in 2017. Out of these, 81.4% of scrap tires were recycled and reused for different applications. More than 100 million scrap tires were used as tire-derived fuel in pulp and paper mills, cement manufacturing, and utility boiler among others. The U.S. is followed by Japan, with more than 60 million tires used for tire-derived fuel.
