Turning Scrap Tires into Energy

Buckeye Wood Energy obtains tire chips from scrap tire processors. The tires have been shredded into 2" pieces and become useful thermal energy.

Buckeye supplies Tire Derived Fuel (TDF) to boiler operations with air permits allowing the use of a wood/TDF fuel mix.

Our TDF comes from environmental clean-up sites and licensed tire processors which allows for recycling of the scrap tires rather than landfilling.

It's a win-win situation.  The environment benefits from the clean-up of the scrap tire sites, recycling of old tires and reduced landfilling while the boiler operations benefit from the use of high BTU, but low cost, TDF.

We supply only those facilities licensed by their state environmental agencies to burn TDF.

Pound for pound, TDF provides more that 3 times the BTU value compared to green wood at 1/3 the cost.
