Perl municipal council approves the amendment to the development plan for the second Pyrum-​owned plant in Perl

  • The development plan only provides for the construction of a tyre thermolysis plant by Pyrum GreenFactory II GmbH
  • Final application documents for the early start of construction are currently being prepared
  • Ground-​breaking ceremony planned for the second half of 2024

Dillingen /​Saar, 21 May 2024 – Last week, the municipal council of Perl voted on the amendment to the development plan for the site of the new plant of Pyrum Innovations AG (“Pyrum”, the “Company”, ISIN: DE000A2G8ZX8) and approved the amendment to the articles of association and thus the new development plan by a majority. Accordingly, only the construction of a tyre thermolysis plant of Pyrum GreenFactory II GmbH was approved on the property. Furthermore, the implementation agreement between the municipality of Perl and Pyrum Innovations AG was signed, which, among other things, stipulates the forest compensation areas for the building site. All comments from authorities, public bodies and the local population were also discussed and taken into account.

Pascal Klein, CEO of Pyrum Innovations AG: “We are very pleased with the support of the Perl municipal council in the process of building our second Pyrum-​owned plant in Perl-​Besch. I would particularly like to thank the mayor, Mr Uhlenbruch, and his team for their excellent coöperation and commitment. With the approval of the amendment to the statutes of the development plan, nothing stands in the way of further planning work and the planned groundbreaking in the second half of 2024.”

The final application documents for the early start of construction are currently being prepared and are expected to be finalised and submitted by the beginning of July 2024. Once the application documents have been approved, the ground-​breaking ceremony will take place at the new site in Perl-Besch.

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.
