History

From garden shed to global player

Pyrum Inno­va­tions AG was founded back in 2008, the brain­child of four friends, and was initi­ally based out of a 9 m² garden shed. Today we are one of the leading ther­mo­lysis compa­nies with world­wide patents. Since the company’s foun­da­tion, we have deve­loped, planned and built ever­y­thing ourselves – from our own labo­ra­tory to the large-scale indus­trial recy­cling plant.
