Innovative Fuel is a new project of „Hardbone International Pvt Ltd‟ with Aim to resolve the energy crises in Industrial sector of Pakistan, especially in the field of Cement, Fertilizer, steel and to introduce scrap tyre chips as Tyer Derived Fuel (TDF).
As a energy source, TDF has good potential as compared to other fuel source alternatives. TDF has a high fuel value of approximately 12,000 to 16,000 BTU per pound, compared to coal (12,000 BTU per pound) and wood (5000 BTU per pound).
Scrap tire-derived fuel, or TDF, is used because of its high heating value. Compared to other commonly used solid fuels, the heating value is 25-50% higher than coal and 100-200% higher than wood as per Guideline issued by Government of Pakistan.
ASTM 6700-01 “Standard Practice for Use of Scrap Tire-Derived Fuel”
The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) approved ASTM 6700-01, an International Standard for TDF, in 2006. ASTM Standard D-6700-01 “Standard Practice for Use of Scrap Tire-Derived Fuel” offers end-users and potential end-users an industry-accepted standard against which they can compare all tire chips.
