Emission of Nox, Sox and Co from the Combustion of Vehicle Tyres in an Abattoir



Oxides of nitrogen (NOx), Sulphur (Sox) and Carbon II Oxide arising from the combustion of old tyres in an abattoir environment were measured. The method used was that of American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM, D-3249-95, 2000). Air samples from the emitting environment were drawn and quantified by means of modules in the flue gas analyzer. Results obtained showed that the concentrations of NOx (0.73mg/m3) and Sox (0.11mg/m3) exceeded WHO Allowable limits (0.021-0.026mglm3 for NOx and 0.019mg/m3 for Sox). However CO emission (0.67mg/m3) was below the allowable limit. The health effects of pollutant emissions on man and recommendation for alternative use of waste tyres are also discussed in this paper.

Keywords: NOx, Sox, CO, Tyre, Emission, Combustion.
