Course Content

The webinar introduces the challenges and strategy to upgrade tire derived oil (aka. tire pyrolysis oil) using hydroprocessing technology to convert it into an automotive fuel (e.g. diesel) or a fuel suitable for processing in a steam cracker and to be further converted into poly-olefins.


After participating to the webinar, attendees will:

  • Be introduced to the challenges of upgrading tire derived oils
  • Understand the upgrading strategies using hydroprocessing technology such as hydrotreating and hydrocracking
  • Be aware of the technical requirements in order to produce fuels or feed for steam crackers when using such feedstocks
  • Get to see a few examples and product properties that can be obtained using different process configurations

Target Audience

This course will be useful to:

  • Organizations interested in tire pyrolysis and tire recycling
  • Organizations interested in upgrading of tire derived oils in order to produce transport fuels or feed to steam crackers
  • Refinery engineers who work with hydroprocessing and related catalysts and processes, as well as more experienced engineers interested in upgrading of alternative feedstocks
  • Investors evaluating investments in new technologies linked to the circular economy and materials sustainability
  • Researchers and consultants from other fields wishing to add know-how to their portfolio
