First warm-​up run of Line 3 starts at the main plant in Dillingen

  • Successful start of hot commissioning of reactor 3
  • First production run scheduled to start next week
  • Throughput to be rapidly increased to 75 to 80 %

Dillingen /​Saar, 24 May 2024 – Pyrum Innovations AG (“Pyrum”, the “Company”, ISIN: DE000A2G8ZX8) is commissioning the third and thus last thermolysis reactor (TAD 3) at its main plant in Dillingen/​Saar. Following the successful commissioning of TAD 2 so far, the third reactor was heated up for the first time yesterday. This involved heating the new reactor to a temperature of around 650 °C for the first time.

The findings from the previous commissioning of TAD 2 were transferred in full to TAD 3. In recent weeks, additional minor adjustments have been made on this basis, which have contributed to a smooth start of the new reactor. After the reactor has cooled down and the final preparatory work has been completed this weekend, the first warm-​up run with the production of thermolysis oil and rCB is scheduled for next week. The aim is to subsequently ramp up the throughput of TAD 3 to 75 to 80 % of the target output within a few commissioning runs. Within the next six to twelve months, TAD 2 and TAD 3 are then to be successively ramped up to full capacity utilisation of 100 %.

Pascal Klein, CEO of Pyrum Innovations AG: “We are proud that we will soon be able to utilise the full potential of our thermolysis technology. Thanks to the findings from the commissioning of TAD 2, we were able to make minor optimisations before the start of TAD 3, which led to a smooth first warm-​up of TAD 3. With the first warm-​up of the last reactor, we are now on the home stretch of our site expansion at our main plant in Dillingen.”

In addition, the final commissioning of the conversion of the specially produced thermolysis gas into electricity is scheduled for the next few weeks. Adjustments and fine-​tuning are currently still being carried out.

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.
