Title: Waste tire gasification in a negative ambient pressure environment

Abstract: An apparatus for providing waste tire gasification in a negative ambient pressure environment includes a gasification unit, a combustion unit, and a connection pipe. The gasification unit includes a gasification chamber, at least one air vent, at least one gasification igniter, and a fan. The combustion unit includes a combustion chamber, and an exhaust pipe. The connection pipe connects the output of the gasification unit with the combustion unit. In operation, tires are placed inside the gasification chamber. The tires are ignited using the gasification igniter. The rapid oxidation of the tires is fed with the air entering the at least one air vent. Combustion gases generated from the oxidizing tires are pulled out of the gasification chamber through a vacuum pipe with the fan. The gases are pushed through the connection pipe in to the combustion chamber. The combustion gases are ignited in the combustion chamber with at least one combustion igniter.
