Tyre Derived Fuel

At PPP Group, we have established ourselves as a leading producer and exporter of Tyre Derived Fuel in Ireland or the UK.

Tyre Derived Fuel is the concept of shredding end-of-life used tyres to be used a source of fuel. It is widely regarded as a viable alternative to fossil fuels, producing a similar amount of energy as oil and up to 20% more energy than coal.

PPP Group have the flexibility and capability to manufacture TDF to meet a variety of desired shred and crumb specifications.

We can be relied upon to meet the needs of large-volume contracts and have significant experience delivering export contracts to countries including Turkey and India.

PPP Group have been leaders in used tyre recycling for over 20 years. We are fully committed to producing environmentally friendly and sustainable products, which is demonstrated by our significant investments in recent years.

We receive annual audits in relation to environmental compliance and have successfully been awarded the BS-PAS107 & BS-PAS108 ‘End of Waste’ accreditations.


Benefits of Tyre Derived Fuel include:

  1. Decreases Dependence on Fossil Fuels

As our hunger for energy grows worldwide, our draw on non-renewable energy sources is growing as well. Incorporating alternative fuels helps decreases our need to tap into these energy reserves.


  1. Reduces Waste

With the Global Market producing hundreds of millions of scrap tyres each year, we need ways to dispose of them or recycle them into useful products. Otherwise, they end up in landfills or stockpiles where they are an environmental hazard.


  1. Reduces Emissions

Burning coal and wood produce other harmful emissions in addition to carbon dioxide. In plants designed to burn TDF to produce energy, the emissions can be much lower burning TDF instead of solid fuel.


  1. Consistent High BTUs

The heat produced by burning fossil fuel may fluctuate as the fire burns. TDF generates a steady burn that produces consistent heat, maintaining the high temperatures and making TDF a better choice for energy production.
