Abstract: Scrap tires are a burdensome and common kind of waste. After use they become a non-functional waste product, disposal of which is also difficult. Almost 1.5 billion tires are produced each year and each tire produced will eventually join the waste stream. According to European Union regulations, the disposal of waste tires is prohibited; as an alternative they should be recovered and recycled. Pyrolysis allows the dissolution of the waste and it also produces useful by-products. In this process gas, liquid and solid phases are formed. Pyrolytic gases have a high heating value, about 30 - 40 MJ/Nm3. The energy obtained from combustion of the pyrolytic gas is enough not only to perform the pyrolysis process but it can also be utilized for other applications. However, there is a big challenge: the concentration of SO2 in the flue gases is greater than regulatory limits. Similar situations could also arise with HCl, NOX and heavy metals. In order to meet regulatory requirements and maintain optimum pyrolysis, gas cleaning methods will be needed in order to remove those substances from the exhaust gases formed during waste tire pyrolysis. The main aim of this article is to review the properties of pyrolysis gas for energy recovery because it is a good gaseous fuel. In addition, possible implications will be identified.
