Can Tires Provide an Alternative to Furnace Oil?

Student: Christoph Vetter

District/Region: Strait District

Event: 2012 Canada-Wide Science Fair

Grade 12 - Richmond Academy

My project involves the development of a device to produce tire pyrolysis oil (TPO) by recycling scrap tires and used motor oil. The research and development of my apparatus provides insight into how TPO production and usage would be useful as a furnace oil alternative and environmentally friendly in that it recycles petroleum based waste.
