Used tires or TDF are one of the most readily useable and highest heat content wastes available. TDF is produced from shredded tires from cars and trucks. Its calorific value ranges typically from 7.500 kcal/kg up to 8.000 kcal/kg. Renelux serves the global industry with top quality TDF originated mainly from the European Union and USA.
Environmentally, TDF is much similar to coal and better in some aspects like sulphur content. Typically, TDF has 0.5% to 2.0% sulphur; this is same as superior quality coal and less than most coal and coke types. TDF can reduce fuel cost to industries and can help industries reduce the potential carbon tax.
On January 2019, Renesolids SMPC, a member of Renelux Group carried out one of the largest transboundary shipments of waste ever done from Greece and Balkans to EU and OECD destinations. It was a dry bulk cargo shipment of 1.000 Metric Tons of Tire-Derived Fuel (TDF) in the form of tire shreds 90mm x 90mm. The port of loading was Eleusis Greece and the port of discharge was Gemlik Turkey.
