Thermogravimetric analysis and Chemical kinetics of Waste Tires




Thermogravimetry, Waste tyres, Chemical kinetics, Activation energy, Pyrolysis


The focus of this paper is to analyse the pyrolysis reaction of waste tires. The pyrolysis was studied experimentally using thermal and chemical kinetics. The tires were pyrolyzed using thermogravimetry at a temperature range of 200 to 600°C, with heating rates of 10, 20, and 50°C/min. The activating energy was observed to increase with increased temperature. The highest activating energy was 101.02 kJ/mol at a heating rate of 50°C/min.
