The goal of this project is to develop a method that pulverizes waste tires into a 300 micron crumb rubber for less than $318 per ton. This crumb rubber can be used as an alternative to pulverized coal for power generation. The final design is a two stage mechanical pulverizing system. A prototype has been completed that creates the required size of crumb rubber and a theoretical industrial process has been developed that meets cost requirements.
