Title: CONTINUOUS RECYCLING OF RUBBER AND ORGANIC POLYMERS USING SUPERCRITICAL WATER OXIDATION CLOSED SYSTEM
Abstract:
An embodiment provides a method for recycling tires, including: injecting, using a pump, a rubber material into a dissociating system, wherein the pump exerts a mechanical force upon the rubber material to reduce a size of the rubber material; within the dissociating system, creating a rubber material mixture, by: injecting a supercritical fluid to be mixed with the rubber material; heating, using a heat source, the rubber material mixture; and atomizing the rubber material mixture: and sending the resulting atomized rubber material mixture to a separating system to separate the rubber material mixture into different components. Other aspects are described and claimed.
