Tire Derived Fuels

Tire derived fuel (TDF) is one of several viable alternatives to prevent newly generated scrap tires from inappropriate disposal in tire piles, and for reducing or eliminating existing tire stockpiles.  West Coast Rubber Recycling uses high volume processing systems and equipment to manufacture tire fuel chips and tire fuel shreds that meet fuel user specifications and ASTM 6700-01 Standard Practice for Use of Scrap Tire Derived Fuel.

Based on over 15 years of experience with more than 80 individual facilities, the EPA recognizes that the use of tire-derived fuels is a viable alternative to the use of fossil fuels.  EPA testing shows that TDF has a higher BTU value than coal.  The Agency supports the responsible use of tires in Portland cement kilns and other industrial facilities, so long as the candidate facilities: (1) have a tire storage and handling plan; (2) have secured a permit for all applicable state and federal environmental programs; and (3) are in compliance with all the requirements of that permit.
