Generation Power At Titan Technologies
Titan Technologies (Albuquerque/USA) has announced that its ability to generate electricity by using the gas and carbon black byproducts generated by its tyre recycling process has sparked considerable interest from tyre shredding operations across North America.Titan had been researching the use of its plants to generate electrical power. Titan addressing costs and developing scrubbers to eliminate emissions from combustion of the oil, gas and carbon black produced by the process.
Once these costs have been determined, Titan will develop an electrical generation business pro forma for different locations. At this time, Titan believes that a TRTM plant is an economically viable electrical generation system. Ronald L.
Wilder, Titan’s president, added, “All cities and countries have major waste tyre problems and most, if not all, will need additional electrical generation. There can be special benefits if additional power comes from recyclable waste tyres”.Titan’s current claim is that the BTU output of a Titan Technologies tyre recycling plant processing 100 tons of scrap tyres per day is almost 3 billion BTU/day in excess of the energy required to operate the recycling plant.
