OLD USELESS TYRES
VEA Recycling Process
VEA Recycling Process
Cleanly Recycled Tyres
Grinding up old tyres to make crumbs or flakes is not a means of recycling tyres as the rubber has not been changed and there is a limit to how much of this material can be used for kindergarten playgrounds and soccer fields and using it as a furnace fuel in Asia creates noxious greenhouse damaging emissions.
As well as the environmental problem caused by dumps of old tyres or illegally discarding them in bushland and waterways, after rain they become a breeding ground for mosquitoes and a source of such dangerous diseases as Dengue and Ross River Fever.
However, using a technique known as destructive distillation, Viride Energy Africa is able to convert this wasted resource and an environmental hazard into high demand valuable raw materials.
The process is emission free and the recycled oil is used as the heat source for the production process.
Resources Recovered by a Single VEA Plant per Year
VEA Tyre Recycling Process
Destructive Distillation is the name VEA gives to their tyre recycling process which is developed from basic chemistry, the genius of Technical Director Denis Randall and his thirty five years of study and experimentation into organic waste streams. As a result VEW has developed the knowledge of getting the chemical reaction to occur.
The process begins by loading whole end of life tyres into a process chamber, which is evacuated of air and sealed. In the initial steps no further processing of the tyres, such as chopping or crumbing is required.
VEA Biodiesel Advantages
Biodiesel is better for the environment because it is made from renewable resources and has lower emissions compared to petroleum diesel. It is less toxic than table salt and biodegrades as fast as sugar. Since it is made from renewable resources such as soybeans, animal fats, chicken fats, fish oils, vegetal oil, cooking used oils, its use decreases our dependence on foreign oil and contributes to our own economy.
- With a positive energy balance of 5.54:1.
- Promotes better air quality:
- By lowering toxic emissions vs. petroleum diesel.
- Decreases our country’s dependence on foreign oil:
- Creates jobs and is good for the economy.
Who we are
Viride Energy Africa is a registered company formed to solve the problem of dealing with billions of old tyres and to create a sustainable, economically viable African biofuels industry, consistent with national and community interests and environmental standards Viride Energy has developed innovative technology that converts tyres back into carbon, oil and steel, without producing emissions.
