Mishergas has developed a process (patent pending) that utilises tyre recovery in what we believe is the most efficient and cost effective way. We combine “best in the class” technologies to achieve this.
– Recycling waste.
– Recovering energy.
– Reducing landfill, pollution & toxic leachate.
– Upcycling materials into products that can be sold and used again.
– Offsetting approximately 70,000 tonnes of C02 a year (the equivalent of 120 million trees!)
– Reducing dependence on fossil fuels.
The Mishergas Process also produces heat which can be used in many ways depending on location.
This model can support business parks and industrial sites, fulfilling or supplementing all their electrical and district heating needs off grid.
Our 15 acre site is located near to Immingham Docks, near to Hull, with an existing 3 acre shed.
The Energy Recovery facility will be run continually, thereby processing the waste tyres and producing constant energy. The technology of pyrolysis quite simply bakes the tyres in a closed in unit without oxygen. The syngas produced is taken off the top and 5% is used to power the facility; the rest is distilled into pyrolysis oil.
ER1 will be processing 50,000 tonnes of waste car & lorry tyres a year. This equates to 10% of the UK’s annual 50 million waste tyres.
Our planning application was approved at the beginning of December. The Environmental Permit application has been prepared as is nearly ready for submission.
Every year, in the UK alone, there are over 50 million vehicle tyres that are discarded. These are often, illegally, stored in old warehouses or dumped in huge piles in the countryside (a massive fire risk as well as toxic leachate into water courses) or are shipped abroad to be used, often, in cement kilns ( sending more toxins into the atmosphere). Waste tyres are a huge problem around the world; some tyre dumps are so vast, they can be seen from outer space. Massive amounts of oil and rubber are used in their manufacturing process; their high calorific value means that they are great feed stock for industrial processes, however once they are burnt for whatever purpose, all the embodied energy that has gone into them has literally gone up in smoke.
We believe that every cloud has a silver lining and that by using our creative, experienced and capable team, we can find a responsible answer to most problems. With our Energy Recovery Development, we have achieved this for waste tyres. The embodied energy of the tyres is recovered in a sustainable manner and is then re-sold back for the manufacture of rubbers and plastics and as oil that can be blended or distilled for different purposes.
The 3 proposed Energy Recovery developments in the UK will equate to the carbon offsetting of over 360 million 15 year old trees!
Nothing is wasted using the “Mishergas Process” and it is something that can be replicated around the globe.
The Mishergas team draws from a wide range of experience and together we can strategise, innovate and form business models that can clean up most forms of waste.
From lakes filled with oil to deserts, the Mishergas “Clean Up Crew” will find a solution; turning environmental liabilities into sustainable solutions and profitable assets.
As our mission statement says; waste is only unrealised potential.
Using our experience of creating “live earth” filled with probiotic bio-stimulants, we can recover waste lands and transform them into forests and arable land. Combining this with the knowledge of implementation of anaerobic digesters and reed bed systems, we can also use this if necessary to purify water waste and use it for irrigation. From the digesters we can extract the digestate solids, which we can recycle as a part of our terra-forming process.
Our terra-forming vermiculture methodology reinstates essential mychorrizas into the earth which create an underground network, essential for ultimate tree and plant growth. Our symbiotic forestry plantation design is essential for creation of forests in lands where conditions are particularly extreme or difficult.
