Extracting Value From Scrap Tires
From construction of custom Advanced Pyrolysis facilities to complete supply chain management for both raw and finished goods to a complete suite of operations consulting, CarbonCycle helps municipalities and scrap tire waste-generating companies and agencies responsibly alleviate their waste tire problem.
What is Pyrolysis?
Pyrolysis is the thermal decomposition of materials at elevated temperatures in an inert atmosphere.
CarbonCycle’s proprietary system for advanced waste tire pyrolysis/gasification provides an environmentally sound approach to design and build scrap tire remediation (biomass conversion) systems for converting waste tires into their base elements of carbon, fuel oil, and steel.
What Does CarbonCycle Do?
Waste Tire Management
Aid in, or completely manage, the safe removal & transformation of waste tires into reusable/resalable commodities.
Provide an alternative, cost effective solution for processing difficult to manage tire waste through a turnkey system.
Raw/Finished Material Sales
Offering guaranteed supply and quality of both carbon & crude, as well as a guaranteed buy back program to our pyrolysis partners.
The CarbonCycle Difference
As an engineering-forward organization, CarbonCycle is at the leading-edge of solving the scrap tire waste-to-energy problem with the development of our proprietary Advanced Pyrolysis system, a solution that promises better scrap tire remediation results both from a financial and environmental standpoint.
The CarbonCycle team has 50+ years of collective industry experience. We have designed and built 3 waste-to-energy facilities to date and consulted on 30 other systems in the US and Canada. We bring full in-house capacity in Environmental Engineering, facility design and fabrication, project management, and offtake marketing.
From construction to training to supply chain management, CarbonCycle has the expertise to set up your organization’s Advanced Pyrolysis process from the ground up. This includes building and infrastructure design, material handling, equipment installation, custom software and training of your staff to make it all work.
By utilizing pre-fabricated shipping containers as our unit exoskeleton, we are able to manufacture complete modular systems offsite to then simply and quickly reassemble for start-up once reaching their final destination. Maintenance also becomes much more streamlined with standardized parts across units. Simply put, this means more control across the production process, less unnecessary technical headaches and more unit run-time.
With modularity comes complete system scalability. A system can begin at a smaller size, requiring far less initial capital investment to get started with Advanced Pyrolysis. As needs increase, so can your facility. System sizes start at 2 tons a day and can be expanded upon to handle up to 150 tons per day in order to quickly and easily meet demand.
Our continuous batch process allows for diverse feedstocks (large tires, scrap sidewalls, plastic, wood, and other products) to be utilized without cross-contamination, higher efficiency of char output, and less downtime. Individual chambers can be repaired and rebuilt without the need to shut down operation of the entire unit.
Direct heating/cooling yields faster cycle times with minimal input energy and external energy losses. This reduces auxiliary systems, like nitrogen loops and reduces capital expense while keeping the system simple and efficient. Feedstock loading, and output unloading, has also been designed to keep costs low, staffing demand light and efficiency always front of mind.
Our Heat Source Thermal Oxidizer achieves 99.99% destruction of all HAPs, (Hazardous Air Pollutants). Unlike other facilities, our system will emit no black smoke and have no tire odor. Permitting becomes far more straightforward with a highly clean system.
Triple Bottom Line
CarbonCycle holds a healthy balance of People, Planet and Profit at our core. We take all three elements as seriously as we do our Engineering, giving partners assurance that we will do things the right way, every time. For us it’s all about sustainability.
Who Does CarbonCycle Work With?
Agencies & Municipalities
As landfill space is depleted, the responsibility for managing waste has continued to become more difficult. CarbonCycle can help. We understand what is important for moving the needle for agency programs, and the unique needs and nuances facing municipalities, alike.
Companies Offloading Waste
Privately held businesses face a new and different set of challenges when dealing with waste removal. Whether that be the everchanging regulations from outside agencies, the groundswell of customer demand for companies to do what is responsible, or the direct cost of waste remediation. CarbonCycle can help by both responsibly removing the waste and/or re-converting it into a usable resource for your business.
Buyers Of Raw Products
A recycler of purely waste products, CarbonCycle is positioned to be your reliable, go-to source for sustainable, up-cycled carbon char, oil and steel. Our proprietary Advanced Pyrolysis process produces pure, clean products that are a market-ready, eco-positive choice.
