The extraction of natural resources inevitably produces a large amount of hydrocarbon-containing waste. Most noticeable are used truck tires.

The most problematic in this regard were companies involved in the extraction of iron ore, copper ores, gold mining enterprises, enterprises for the production of potash fertilizers and other minerals.

Considering that each tire for modern trucks can weigh up to 6 tons, and they wear out within 3-6 months (sharp quarry stones lead to quick wear), the problem of contamination of the territory with used tires is very relevant.
In addition, enterprises use a large amount of used rubber from conveyors.
Often with an open-pit mining method, mining companies are faced with significant intercalations of overburden coal or peat which can be gasified and generate electrical and thermal energy for their own needs.
The remoteness of mining enterprises and the subsequent high cost of waste removal makes used tires a real problem not only for the mining companies themselves, but also for the entire environment of the region, in particular Latin America (Peru, Chile), Africa, and Asia.
At the same time, modern production technologies involve the use of a large number of electrical equipment (excavators, mining equipment, vehicles, drainage pumps, etc.). Mostly, electricity is generated through the operation of diesel generators that burn large amounts of fossil fuels that are harmful to the environment. Naturally, this fuel must be imported and the cost of the generated energy is very high. Energy shortages do not allow enterprises to improve the standard of living of workers and the public and to work to reduce harmful environmental impacts in mining.

The Solution
The use of UNIVASTUM's WARP ® GASIFICATION TECHNOLOGY allows not only to utilize waste, but also to receive additional cheap electric energy, which can be used both to reduce the cost of production and to improve the quality of life of workers and the local population.

Features

Parameters: 1 Module

16,000 T
Disposal per year

1,5 - 4 MW
Electrical Capacity
3,5 - 7 GСal
Heat per hour
The modular design makes it easy to install from 1 to 5 complexes on one site.
The small area of the complex and the small size of the sanitary zone allows you to place complexes on the territory of the factory.
We can work with waste of various calories from 6 mJ.

Our Advantages & Benefits

On-site waste disposal
Significantly reduced costs for the transport of waste, the creation of landfills and the use of lime.
Generating electricity for own needs
Reducing the cost of mining, the implementation of additional measures that improve the quality of life of workers and the population.
Image and reputation
Positive image of the company among the local population.
Reduced environmental fees/ fines
Increased company profits.
СО2
Reducing greenhouse gas emissions, replacing diesel in diesel generators.
Economic Effect
Projects payback in 3-8 years.



Health and Ecology
In the process of gasification, the system does not come in contact with the surrounding environment until the fuel is completely burned in the gas turbine.
The complex has an extremely low level of exhaust emissions, corresponding to the highest requirements of the European Union and the USA.
The complex is completely free of water and soil pollution.
