|Abstract:||Pyrolysis is an technology to derive value added products like pyrolytic oil, steel wire and carbon black, which works on the principle of thermo-chemical conversion of any carbonaceous feed stocks. The major factors affecting the pyrolysis are temperature, reactor configurations, residence time, heating source etc. A pilot plant study was conducted in a tire pyrolysis oil production industry located in Oyalapathy, Kerala for collecting the oil samples for the analysis. Tire pyrolysis oil (TPO) is a brownish colored, freely flowing liquid, medium viscosity with complex chemical composition. Due to its complex aromatic structure, presence of acids, aldehydes, oxygenated compounds hinders to apply in engine and stove as a fuel. Upgrading of hydrocarbons are necessary to obtain value added products and to derive thermally stable products. There are limited number of studies are carried out in the field of stove fuel production from hydrocarbon derived waste. An attempt was carried out to find the suitability of pyrolysis oil as a fuel in cook stove and oil lamps. The water boiling test was carried out to examine the boiling time for specific volume of water. The study shows that the TPO boils water in shorter time than kerosene and a clear comparison of two brand of fuels. The present study mainly includes the characterization like FTIR, GC-MS to investigate the components present in the oil and compare with diesel and kerosene. The commercialization and economic feasibility studies will be planned in future. � Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.|
