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.
