Pyrum Innovations AG receives ‘Employer of the Future’ award

Dillingen /​Saar, 10 November 2022 – Pyrum Innovations AG (“Pyrum”), a pioneering company that sustainably recycles used tyres with its pyrolysis technology, has been recognised as an “Employer of the Future” by the German Innovation Institute for Sustainability and Digitalisation (DIND). The award was based on a multi-​stage assessment process in which DIND experts examined the company’s future viability and analysed its digital touchpoints and brand presence. The official award ceremony will be held in Cologne on 1 December 2022 by former Federal Minister of Economics Brigitte Zypries.

Pascal Klein, CEO of Pyrum Innovations AG: “We are delighted to have been recognised as an employer of the future, which also confirms our sustainable business model and our innovative technology. In order to utilise our great potential, we naturally need the right employees. In this respect, we see the Employer of the Future seal as a further argument for attracting skilled workers to us.”

The appraisal process focused on aspects that make the company attractive and are important for its future viability – in particular, digitalisation and sustainability. The DIND develops the methodology, content and assessment criteria in consultation with top experts from various disciplines and reviews these at regular intervals.

About Pyrum Innovations AG

With its patented pyrolysis technology, Pyrum Innovations AG is active in the attractive recycling market for used tyres and various plastics. Pyrum’s pyrolysis process is largely energy self-​sufficient and, according to the Fraunhofer Institute, saves significantly more CO2 emissions than today’s standard recycling processes for used tyres – especially compared to incineration in cement plants – and produces new raw materials such as pyrolysis oil, gas and recycled carbon black (rCB) from the waste used as input materials. In this way, Pyrum closes the material cycle and pursues a 100% sustainable business model. As a pioneer, Pyrum Innovations AG was the first company in the waste tyre recycling sector to receive REACH registration from the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) for the pyrolysis oil it produces back in 2018. This means that the oil is recognised as an official raw material that can be used in production processes. In addition, Pyrum has received ISCC PLUS certification for the pyrolysis oil and the rCB. Both products are therefore recognised as sustainable and renewable raw materials. Pyrum has also received ISO 14001 certification for its environmental management system and ISO 9001 certification for its quality management system. These successes have also been recognised by international experts in the tyre industry. For example, Pyrum was honoured at the first Recircle Awards in the category Best Tyre Recycling Innovation and has been a finalist for the German SME award three times in a row.
