Automobile tires are one of the generated wastes from the road transport. According to an EU directive after 2006, end-of-life tires are subject to controlled collection and storage by traders. Direct incineration is unacceptable due to high levels of hazardous emissions. In addition to the high rate of depletion of natural resources, and in line with the “sustainable development” model, it is appropriate to create new advanced technologies for the proper utilization of natural resources through the reuse of end-of-life products. The pyrolysis technology of decomposition of raw materials is an innovative technology for production of fuels and metals from the disposal tires. This technology shows a reduced risk to public health and reduced levels of harmful substances in flue gases, has low operating costs and does not require separate waste collection. This paper focuses on the structural features of the pyrolysis installation for used automobile tires recycling. The installation has been implemented into production and has a capacity of 1 ton of end-of-life tires per hour. The result is 400 kg of liquid fuel, 400 kg of carbon and 100 kg of metal waste per hour.
