The batch type waste tire pyrolysis plant uses external fuel for initial heating at the beginning of process in the reactor. In India the wood being the cheapest fuel is normally used for initiating heating to achieve thermal cracking of waste tyre in the reactor. Once the desired temperature, that is 500 to 600 degree calcius is achieved in the reactor, the process become self sustainable on thermal heating through recycling of residual gas into the reactor furnace. The process dynamics some time reaches to a situation when residual gas becomes surplus and reactor does not require full quantity of residual gas and hence this surplus quantity of residual gas needs to be evacuated from the system. This residual gas carries very good caloric value of around 4470 Kcal/SM3. In the present scenario this surplus residual gas is flared off or simply vented into atmosphere. This paper is determining quantity of surplus residual gas, its heating value and methods to captive uses and eliminates external fuel as being used at the process beginning.
