Pearl Global’s process converts 100% of the disposed tyre into valuable products.
Tyre Derived Diesel (Liquid form) – Burner Fuels
High-grade fuels produced in commercial quantities or, if further processed, even more valuable solvents, and very high-grade carbon black, which is in demand worldwide for the tyre, paint, plastic and other general manufacturing industries.
A clean rubber-free product which can be sold to recyclers worldwide and re-used in the manufacturing and steel industries.
Carbon char – recovered carbon black (rCB)
A fine powdered substance that can be sold as a commercial binder to enhance asphalts and bitumens. Or as a price competitive product for creating mining tyre re-treads or new tyres. Further the rCB can be upgraded into activated carbon, with an improved emissions profile. There is potentially high global demand for quality activated carbon, which is used in plastics, paint, industrial manufacturing and water filtration.Carbon char video
Waste to Energy – the full circular economy
Non-condensable gases are passed through a thermal oxidiser to produce emissions that are significantly lower than the minimum standards allowed by the European Waste Incineration Directive.
Being hydrocarbons and especially rich in hydrogen, the gases produced also have the potential to be converted into electricity for multiple external applications as well as self-powering of Pearl TDUs. Pearl has received a government grant from the Queensland Government to convert its clean gases in to electrical energy – enough to power our own facility as a minimum.
