The agency quotes Anton Turtanov, the Head of the Environmental Control and Nature Management Department of JSC Apatit, about the environmental safety of KTO and TDP:
Driven by high temperatures in a sealed chamber, the tires, if anything, is decomposed. The fully automated process eliminates harmful emissions into the atmosphere. (…) The main feature of this facility is that the exhaust gases are burned in a special chamber at a temperature of up to 1500 °C. All substances dangerous to human health, for example, dioxins, are simply split into safe components.
