Tire pyrolysis plant planned in New Orleans
A Florida-based tire pyrolysis company Aether International Renewable Energy is planning to launch a new facility near Sunset, Louisianna. According to the article by The Advocate, the new 125,000-square-foot business unit is expected to create up to 65 new jobs.
Aether International Renewable Energy will use end-of-life tires to produce environment-friendly industrial commodities. According tp the same article by The Advocate, the new pyrolysis plant could be ready for operation as soon as summer 2023. It will include space for production, office, shipping and a lab for continued research into renewable energy technology.
The facility will be based in a special environment-friendly building with three production lines that are expected to reduce CO2 emissions by 9,800 metric tons annually, and create 130 tanker trucks worth of fuel, with the capacity to recycle almost 33,000 tons a year. According to the source, the gas off-take could provide plant with energy resulting in a low-grade dependency on energy to the facility.
The company says that the main output types of the new tire pyrolysis plant will be tire-derived fuel oil and recovered carbon black.
Based on the documents filed with Louisiana Economic Development office, the company will receive rough-cut shredded tires at its new facility, process the feedstock into crumb rubber with steel being removed and recycled and use the thermal conversion process afterwards.
