Many different alternatives have been use throughout the years in order to recover energy from used tyres. Among the alternatives are grinding, incineration, pyrolysis and reclaiming. However, research show that all the alternatives mentioned above have few drawbacks that resulted in the lack in usage of used tyres as fuel energy. There are two objectives of this study. Firstly is to conduct parametric test on carbon black production using small in-house fabricated incinerator and the second objective is to fabricate on a functional prototype of an incinerator that can further applied for usage of community. Target people was also identified which is villagers that often do open burning of their daily waste. For the experiment, the incinerator is designed and fabricated especially for the experiment. The result shown that the period of burning is linear to the amount of fuel burned but the amount of carbon black collected does not produce a pattern which is believed due to the effects of wind speed and direction during open burning session. However, it is concluded that the carbon produced during burning can be trapped by using simple carbon filter.
