My name is Christoph Vetter and I am currently enrolled at Richmond Academy in Louisdale, Nova Scotia. I have a strong passion for hands on work, biology and the environment. I feel that it is our responsibility to preserve nature and reduce consumer waste output. One of the most prevalent types of waste products that I see locally are petroleum-based. Through research, I discovered that companies in China are using pyrolysis to produce a furnace oil alternative. It all seemed very appealing to my desire of engaging in a hands on project that required constructing my own unique mechanism to produce TPO and to then see how this oil would compare with normal furnace oil in terms of combustion potential. The project required commitment, but it was really neat to see the mechanism evolve through parts gathered from the local junkyard. Seeing your own theoretical visualizations come to life as you put parts together piece by piece is a great learning experience and I strongly recommend for anyone who has a passion for engaging in a project which they will have fun completing to enter the science fair, as hands on research is the best way to learn.

Can Tires Provide an Alternative to Furnace Oil?
Ville:Grand River, NS
École:Richmond Academy
Sommaire:My project involves the development of a device to produce tire pyrolysis oil (TPO) by recycling scrap tires and used motor oil. The research and development of my apparatus provides insight into how TPO production and usage would be useful as a furnace oil alternative and environmentally friendly in that it recycles petroleum based waste.
