End-of-life Tyres as an Alternative Fuel (TDF) in Cement Kilns

End-of-life tyres are a challenging type of waste since they are difficult to shred and are expensive to treat and get rid of. However, tyre-derived fuel (TDF) is an extremely good alternative to the traditional fuels used in cement kilns, like oil, coal, and petroleum coke. Here's how TDF can be used for heating cement kilns, and the solutions it can provide.


The calorific value of tyre shred is high and it has nearly the same heat value as oil.

But what other benefits are there in utilising tyre shred as a fuel?
