Tyre Derived Fuel

PPP Group are the leading producer of Tyre Derived Fuel in the UK and Ireland with significant experience delivering large-scale export contracts to countries including Turkey and India.

We have the flexibility to manufacture TDF to meet a variety of desired shred and crumb specifications (including sub-70mm TDF).

PPP Group have the capability to fulfil large-volume contracts and have a proven track-record of exporting large volume shipments ranging from 5,000 to 25,000 tonne loads.

Our industry-leading shredding facility and nationwide tyre collection infrastructure makes PPP Group ideally positioned to deliver international TDF export contracts.

We have been UK leaders in used tyre recycling for over 20 years and are fully committed to producing environmentally friendly and sustainable products.

PPP Group are a multi-award winning organisation, most recently being awarded the 'Sustainable Ireland - Circular Economy' award in 2019 in recognition of our innovative contribution to the recycling industry. 

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

What is Tyre Derived Fuel?

Tyre Derived Fuel is the concept of shredding end-of-life used tyres to be used as 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.


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.
