The use of alternative energy is becoming an environmentally friendly option for many countries to reduce the energy bill. Because of its huge generated waste amounts, waste tires are being a good source for alternative energy in some industries that provide safe operation conditions such as cement industry. The study took Jordan as an example to show the advantage of using the waste tires in cement industry. Results about Jordan showed that if 20, 40 or 60 % of waste tires are used as supplementary fuel; the savings could reach 6.29, 12.57 or 18.86 million dollars respectively. The impact of using waste tire depends strongly on the price of crude oil in each country. Also results showed that there is a positive correlation between the savings and the price of crude oil.
