Tire-Derived Fuel

A CLEANER, MORE EFFICIENT ALTERNATIVE ENERGY SOURCE

WHAT IS TIRE-DERIVED FUEL?

Tire-derived fuel is made by reducing scrap tires into shreds, typically of 1-3 inches, to burn as a fuel source. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recognizes tire-derived fuel as a viable alternative to fossil fuels, producing the same amount of energy as oil and 25% more energy than coal. Tire- derived fuel produces less moisture, sulfur, nitrogen and ash residues, which results in lower carbon emissions for the environment.

Liberty Tire Recycling provides enough tire-derived fuel to generate 100% of the electricity needed to power a city of 150,000 people—equal to the population of Springfield, Missouri.

Fact

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has conducted much research on the importance and value of tire-derived fuels as a cheaper, cleaner alternative to fossil fuels. Tire-derived fuel produces more energy than coal—generating up to 15,000 BTUs per pound.
