Used tyres pose a serious environmental problem and pyrolysis is considered one of the more feasible solutions that may be economically profitable on a large scale. In this study the pyrolysis of tyres has been carried out in a conical spouted bed reactor at 500 °C and the liquid product has been characterized taking into account composition, heat value and simulated distillation. The tyre mass feed in each run was 2 g and the bed was made up of 15 g of sand. Pyrolysis of scrap tyre at the 500 °C gives way to a yield of 3.1% of gases, 37.6% of liquid fraction (C5-C10 range hydrocarbons), 25.6% of tar (C11+) and 33.7% of char. The liquid fraction is of suitable quality for its use as fuel but the char requires activation for its upgrading.
