Rodriguez, I, Laresgoiti, M, Cabrero, M, Torres, A, Chomon, M, & Caballero, B (2000). Pyrolysis of scrap tyres. Fuel Processing Technology, 72, 9-22.
This journal article provided in depth information about tyre pyrolysis. The article explains how processes in the past for studying tyre pyrolysis were often flawed and problematic, and often the sample put in the reactors weren’t representative of the entire tyre. The article performs pyrolysis on a carefully selected piece of tyre and compares the resulting oils, gases, and char at different temperatures of pyrolysis. Very informative article.
