Alternative Fuel


PRECIMECA is recognized worldwide for the cutting quality of its tire shredders. Both end users (cement manufacturers for example) and their suppliers are looking for efficient and reliable equipment. The use of a range of machines specially designed for shredding scrap tires guarantees performance (throughput, energy consumption, availability rate, etc.) throughout the whole life time of the knives.


Scrap tires can be used as alternative fuel to replace coal, petcoke or oil. These industries which seek to reduce their fossil energy consumption (cement factories, paper mills, steel plants, etc.) appreciate its high calorific value and its homogeneity.

In addition to the energy supplied, the composition of the tires also allows a subsitution of part of the silica and the iron needed in the clinker formula, for example. This is called co-processing.
