The accumulation of these tyres and plastics in legal or illegal rubbish dumps, converter these areas en fertile breeding ground for roaders, reptiles and flyers, in some cases even dangerous as transmitters of ills as dengue or malaria, which lives quietly in stagnant water surfaces in these tyres.

So far it has been tried to avoid this, burying the tyres and plastics in sanitary landfills; the problem in this case is double, since the tyres occupy a lot of volume in the landfills, and because their degradation time is very long, 600 years in the case of tyres and several thousand years in the case of plastics. Another solution that has been used is to incinerate them either to fight the effects of frost on crops, thus causing damage to the environment and the health of human and animal populations by the toxic substances that an uncontrolled combustion gives off. Finally, some cement plants and / or thermal power plants use them to improve their final products or as a source of energy but in a crude way in which harmful substances are generated and the potential that this raw material has is wasted.


• Burning

• Cement factories

• Pyrolysis: Contaminating the atmosphere due to all the residues are going out in the way of smokes.

• Recycling plants. Recycling plants which, due to the poor quality of their technology and the materials used for their construction, require huge amounts of energy and personnel, in return for poor performance and with uncontrolled emissions of dioxins and other substances harmful for the environment. The maintenance of these plants and their construction make them especially prone to disasters and breakdowns. Thus, no comparisson between these machines and TAURUS 10000.


The system TAURUS 10000 has pyrolysis technology for the recycling and process of fuel derivates, like plastics and tyres. Pyrolysis is one of the ways to give value to the used tyres. Tyres are converted in other different products that can be used again for different manufactures.

La new technology included in TAURUS 10000 is an added value in this type of processes due to its main technical characteristics:

• No emission of contaminated gases to the atmosphere due to it is a process of close cycle.

• The energetic operation cost is minimum: compared with other installations, it supposes a consumption saving cost of 90%. Taurus 10000 has a system of generation of its own energy.

• This model of machine has a capacity of 10000 kgs per batch per day. The system doesn’t need big industrial installations to run up. Depending on the needs of each town/city, this system may be installed according to the quantity of tyres collected by each location.

Easy to transport, move and assembly: once all the tyres are recycled in one area, the system TAURUS may be disassembly and move to other place. It is necessary only 2 trucks to move the complete system.

• The main products that can be recycled by this system are fuel derivate, such as tyres, rubber and plastics, even though it can be used for recycling sanitary waste, purines, organic material, etc.

• The products generated during the recycling process of TAURUS system (black carbon, crude oil and steel) show a high purity and quality, being susceptible to be incorporated newly to the market as raw materials.

TAURUS 10000 is not a machine but a system, integrated by some of the most new discoveries in recycling, energy generation and descontamination (environment care).

System for the recycling of tires: 6 tons

Recycling of plastics: container for the generation of biodiesel


The collection of these residues has the target to make possible a quality recycling of the materials and components that make them up, which results in significant energy savings and emissions. At the same time, it is obtained some raw materials, achieving the following benefits:

1. Reduce environmental impact in legal and illegal areas and landfills.

2. Improvement of the health of nearby populations.

3. Landscape improvement.

4. Obtaining high value in sub-products From 1ton of used tyres, we obtain:
• 450 litres of fuel (analysis enclosed).
• 350 kgs of black carbon. As much it is reduced as powder (quality is higher), the price of this raw material increases.
• 130 kgs of steel (totally clean).

Products resulting from the recycling process


  • Recycling closed cycle

    Recycling closed cycle (LOOP). Zero (0) emissions to the atmosphere.

  • Complete cycle time in 24 hs

  • Annually processed

    Up to 3.650 tons annually processed by each machine (300 tons monthly) in the Taurus 10000.

  • Electronic control for all machine parameters

  • Floating rotary furnace without chimney, consumption of 50 Kw

  • Heat reduction external furnace in around 94% (< 40ºC)

  • Furnace rotation system

    Furnace rotation system with three-phase electric motor, 3 Kw at 3,5 rpm

  • Thermal control system of temperature

    Thermal control system of temperature for the process to obtain crude oil with a consumption of 3 Kw.

  • Trolley for tyres, to load and unload the furnace

  • Machine manufactured under CE Standards

  • Hight production volumes

    Estimated production ( Taurus 10000 ): 4500 litres of crude oil per batch of tyres, or 9000 litres per batch of plastic. Obtaining approximately 1300 kg of steel per batch. Steel tyre comes out clean and ready for recycling.

    No residues of “tar” or this kind of waste for using “clean technology” in the process of recycling”.

    The process does not require any external fuel. The gas (2 m3 of gas for each full charge) that is released in the electromechanical process, it is used to feed a motor that in turn moves a generator that produces the necessary energy for the whole cycle.

    Getting about 3500 kgs of black carbon per each batch of the machine. Black carbon is used to increase the abrasion resistance of tyres , increasing tensile strength and the wear resistance . It is also used as a pigment , and as a component for paints “anti-radar”, “high-intensity solar panels”, or as raw material for production of “nanomaterials”, printers ink or toner, etc. It is considered one of the most demanded compounds in the current industry.


  • Valves for manual flow control

  • Electric-electronic control box with control panel

  • Alarm installation for active and passive process

  • Necessary staff

    Necessary staff for management and control of the machine: 10 people in 3 shifts (4/2/2 plus two rest).

  • Optimal size of tyres scrap for the process: 15 - 20 cms.


In the recycling of tyres, they can be used without any prior process or only reducing them in size. To reduce size of the used tyres, there are different processes that range from purely mechanical, to other treatments that combine mechanical with chemical or thermal. So far, it has been only shown a certain economic viability in the mechanical recycling.

The retreading, as it is a basic temporal advantage which contributes little and is known throughout the world, will not be addressed in this document. In our case, we will focus on the processing that Taurus 10000 does with the used tyres.

The valuation of tyres covers three big types of treatments: retreading, recycling and energy recovery .

The process starts with primary crushing of the tyre, the tyre is cut into pieces of sizes between 20 and 30 cms. Then, through feed conveyor belts are loaded in the pyrolytic furnace and the electromechanical treatment program starts. During the same, mechanical and thermal variations produce slow distillate of volatile products that are being conducted to chemical systems and machine generator. The rest ends up in a granulated powder (black crbon) with mechanic remains that are magnetically separated for collection.

In the chemical distillate, crude oil gases it becomes in a mixture of diesel oil, gasoline and light oil of high calorific value, and very few impurities and chemical compounds, which are in this respect usable in engines or turbines. Once these compounds are obtained, they are packaged, labeled and/or used in the production of electricity.

The technology used by us to produce electricity, combines physical and chemical high performance cycles, obtaining from these fuels an absolute good income.

As stated above, black carbon is used primarily in the rubber industry (tyres, footwear …), but also there is high demand in the paint industry, toners, etc … asphalt and textile, nanotechnologies industries and also aeronautical industry use it for the manufacture of aircraft coatings or antiradar.

Even that, this is other way if using that it becomes an energy source of great power. Finally the steel is classified, packaged and sold without requiring more processes.
