42809Tire tread as fuel?
- Jul 4, 2013For the last 3 years I've been driving between Chattanooga & Nashville
tending my late father's house.
AND, my accumulation of diecast, zinc alloy, is at the stage of
converting to ZA12 or the latest alloy which is, IIRC, 5% alum & 5%
copper [Generous Motors special] - rest zinc.
Can the tire tread scattered about, be chopped up, & used to supplement
charcoal [more heat?] in a furnace with forced air?
Seems to me I read tire tread can be used in a fluidized bed with coal.
OR, are there more nasty chemicals in the tire tread to make zinc fuming
only a minor PITA?
Thanks for any info!
