This is much better than burning coal. Coal is so protected by loopholes in the regulations created by politicans bought by big coal lobbyists that it is impossible to regulate coal emmissions to safe levels. Tires do not benefit from those loopholes in the regulations and the state can regulate the emissions as tightly as they want. Tires also take up a lot of landfill space and there is not much else that can be done with them that is cost effective. The only way this plant could be better is to build it to burn trash too.
