TK-Meteor 4000 Rubber Tyre/Plastic/Crude
Oil Waste Portable Recycling Plant

TK-Meteor 4000 Rubber Tyre, Plastic, Crude Oil Waste Portable Recycling Plant with Fuel Refinery & Shredder Technology

Meteor Recycling Plant

Portable recycling plant for the generation of biodiesel, fuels and electricity by recycling of tyres and / or plastics through closed loop production technology and production systems.


Technokontrol R&D is committed decisively to the protection and long term prevention to damage our global environment due to bad industrial practices. Due to this reason Technokontrol has developed our unique TK-Meteor 4000 Rubber Tyre/Plastic/Crude Oil Waste Ecological-Friendly Recycling Plants using our own R&D teams to create our own environmentally technological recycling plants to be at the forefront for the protection of the global environment.

Meteor Recycling Plant

Thus creating a cleaner energy bases using our never ending global stockpile of inorganic waste as plastics and rubbers, thus contributing to the improvement and safe guarding of the environment, social conditions and contamination of our water supplies for our future generations regardless of political, national, educational or economic boundries.

Meteor Recycling Plant

The benefits can´t only be seen as directly financially beneficial for the user which takes into account the income generated from the sale of produced biodiesel, electricity, steel, copper, recycled tyres, carbon credits, grants and tar for example, but also environmentally rewarding socially, logistically and politically by reducing the massive storage of inorganic waste in legal & illegal landfills around the world.

Meteor Recycling Plant

Rubber Is difficult to recycle due to the procedure known as “vulcanization,” which it undergoes to attain its springy, flexible nature. Vulcanization is a curing process that involves adding sulfur to rubber, which creates stronger bonds between the rubber polymers. Due to the vulcanization method, tyres are difficult to melt for reuse and are therefore typically broken down by a mechanical process.

Meteor Recycling Plant

Plastics When compared to other materials like glass and metal, plastic polymers require greater processing (heat treating, thermal depolymerization and monomer recycling) to be recycled. Due to the high molecular weight of their large polymer chains, plastics have a low entropy of mixing.

Meteor Recycling Plant

Crude Oil Waste The TK-Meteor 4000 recycling plant not only can it recycle plastics and rubber but it can also recycle all types of fuels, oils, cooking oils, motor engine oils and even the worst crude oils from industrial petrol-chemical oil spills. Crude oil spills usually occur in marine or river oil spills, where oil is released into the rivers, oceans or coastal waters, but spills may also occur on land. Oil spills may be due to releases of crude oil from tankers, offshore platforms, drilling rigs and wells, as well as spills of refined petroleum products (such as gasoline, diesel) and their by-products, heavier fuels used by large ships such as bunker fuel, or the spill of any oily refuse or waste oil. Other environmental issues are oil spills due to pipeline, strage facilities, pumpimg stations fuel theft, natural disasters and the everday more common sabotage or terrorism acts as seen in the Middle East and African nations recently.

A macro molecule interacts with its environment along its entire length, so total energy involved in mixing it is large compared to that of an organic molecule with a similar structure.

Landfill disposal Environmental Issues: Tyres are not desired at landfills, due to their large volumes and 75% void space, which quickly consumes valuable space. Tyres can trap methane gases, causing them to become buoyant, or bubble to the surface. This ‘bubbling’ effect can damage landfill liners that have been installed to help keep landfill contaminants from polluting local surface and ground water.

Technokontrol Anti-Heat/Fire Protection Safety Panels

In the event of fire/heat these panels can resist up to 1600ºc for up to three hours which will protect fuel deposits and machinery in fires.

Refinery Plant & Technology (Inclusive)

Refinery plant for oil refinering to obtain mainly crude but adaptable to produce diesel, gasoline, kerosene or light/heavy oils. (Oil Cracking technology)

Tyres and Plastic Crusher / Shreddar Machinery (Inclusive)

Machine used to chop the residue before being fed into the process.

Motors, valves, and other basic operational parts and spares (Inclusive)

Transportable & Logistical Options

When designing the plant we took into account its portability. There is an option to place the entire system into shipping containers 40 "foot to optimize transport by rail, land, sea or air.

Plant Raw Material Feeding Requirements:

Material requirements for the TK-Meteor 4000 to function optimally are:

  • 3000 kg of crushed material (tyre or plastic)
  • Compacted densities between 640 and 840 kg/m3

The TK-Meteor 4000 recycling plant needs its own shredder machinery which we include in the package to prepare the raw material before being placed into the oven. Thus avoiding loss of production time and financial purchasing, shipping, imports, logistical costs to obtain these raw materials as plastics/rubber tyres at least financially with at least no purchase costs to the user, but also possibly receiving a financial income as grants/payments especially in Europe for recycling these types of highly contaminating inorganic waste types.

This manufacturing process needs at least 4 tanks of shredded/crushed raw material to have prepared to avoid production stoppages. In the event of not having a crusher/shredder operational at any time due to servicing or repairs, there must be at least 18 tons of grinding/shreddered stock ready for immediate use at the plant.

In the refining of crude oil we include our own TK-refinery plant where you can produce one’s own fuels such as crude, diesel, gasoline, kerosene stoves/light oils and heavy oils for commercial or industrial use.

TK METEOR 4000 Electricity Generating Plant

In the event of wishing to generate electricity, the plant may be used driven by gas generators and biodiesel produced by the plant which is capable of rotating with very little  magnetic resistance, thus  allowing  the production of low cost electric power supply and being extremely energy efficient at the same time of still recycling the un-organic materials.

A technical data sheet will follow to explain these concepts and to facilitate a better understanding of the entire production system and plant technology:

Inside view after use of "Oven Cylinder" after recycling cycle of the TK-Meteor 4000.
Black carbon dust/powder from rubber tyres on sides of the "Oven cylinder" and the steel cable metal visible is clean for immediate re-use/recycling.

Meteor Recycling Plant

Gas created inside “Oven Cylinder" makes the whole process nearly energy free and power auto-sufficient. (0.25M3-0.35M3 gas production /per cycle)

Black carbon can also be used to manufacture "Low Radar Detection Special Materials-Paints", "High Intensity Solar Panels", "Specialist Aeronautical Alloys", "Re-usable for the manufacturing of new rubber tyres", etc. 

Meteor Recycling Plant

The left over waste has no traces of any types of "HEAVY TAR", or similar types of "TARS" which make this recycling process extremely difficult making our TK-Meteor 4000 unique and exclusive with Technokontrol´s technology in this field of environmental protection and prevention.

Refinery Unit TK-MRU4000 for 4000 Crude Oil Production

The TK-MRU4000 refinery is a unit used to refine crude oil to obtain diesel fuels. Its production is of 4,000 litres per day (cycle) with a daily net production of 91%.

The TK-MRU4000 refinery plant has been designed to make crude but with some technical changes including simple “cracking technology” we can produce diesel, gasoline, kerosene heavy/light oils for heating systems, for example.
