Pyrolysis Plant Upgrade


Operators of existing pyrolysis plants constantly strive to improve their process and their products. Weibold’s Pyrolysis Plant Improvement consulting services will assess your existing pyrolysis installations and product results and provide you with options and recommendations for modifications or additions to the equipment and processes currently in use.

For pyrolysis operators of certain Chinese batch processing equipment installations, Weibold has a special low cost program that will enhance the product, increase the throughput and allow a cleaner, safer, continuous mode of operation. Please contact us for details.

Your Benefits

Depending on the objective(s) chosen at the start of the service, you will be able to derive one more of the following benefits:

  • Better, more marketable rCB products
  • Improved, more stable, pyrolysis oil and fuel products (especially better sulfur content levels)
  • Increased throughput (up to 3x to 4x for batch to continuous pyrolyis mode conversions)
  • Higher product profit margins due to better product pricing and/or lower OPEX
  • Lower maintenance costs and higher longevity and reliability of your pyrolysis equipment
  • Better Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) qualifications for your pyrolysis operation

Our Approach

Weibold will first perform a detailed analysis of the pyrolysis equipment and processes currently in use. We will then draw on experiences gained from pyrolysis operators world-wide and a large database of suppliers to list options for solutions for the stated objectives. Both technical and economic factors will be considered. A final report will be issued listing and ranking available options and a recommending a course of action.

Weibold is conducting trend, market and technology studies for Clients around the globe. Our Clients include plant operators, investors, lenders, recycling associations, technology providers, and product manufacturers. Now selected cross sections of the knowledge we have collected and pooled in our research database is available for recycling strategists and operators looking for innovations and trends on specific subjects in world-wide markets.


Value Adding Technologies for oil & rCB in Tire Pyrolysis

Weibold's Technology Evaluation study will shed light on types of techniques and machinery to enhance quality of recovered carbon black (rCB) and pyrolysis oil. Apart from quality enhancement opportunities, the document will list technologies required to produce consumer goods from tire pyrolysis materials. Recycling tires into materials such as steel-free crumb rubber and fine rubber powder used to be a profitable venture; however, due to market saturation in developed economies, tire recycling companies might want to shift their focus from raw materials to potentially higher-priced consumer goods made from recycled rubber or even virgin rubber which can be replaced by tire-derived materials.
