Dillingen /Saar, 15 December 2022 — Pyrum Innovations AG (“Pyrum”), a pioneering company that sustainably recycles used tyres with its globally patented, unique pyrolysis technology, has further expanded its coöperation network. As part of a pilot project with the BMW Group, Pyrum recently began recycling used tyres from the BMW Group’s Saarland branch. The pilot project was preceded by an audit in which topics such as occupational health and safety, fire protection, licences and environmental regulations were examined.
Pascal Klein, CEO of Pyrum Innovations AG: “We are delighted to welcome the BMW Group as a renowned partner in our coöperation network. Our unique pyrolysis technology is the leading process for the recycling of used tyres.”
Thomas Grupp, Head of Customer Support Market Germany at the BMW Group: “The responsible use of resources plays a central role for the BMW Group. Our aim is to reduce the consumption of resources by using high-quality secondary materials. In addition, we promote reuse and recycling at the end of the product life cycle in accordance with the principles of the circular economy.”
The BMW Group is involved in various pilot projects to validate new processes and methods. The return of used tyres to a high-quality recycling process is a further step for the BMW Group towards an even more responsible use of resources.
In turn, the pilot project will enable Pyrum to further expand its supply of used tyres, particularly in light of the already approved commissioning of additional production lines at the main plant in Dillingen/Saar. The coöperation with BMW expands Pyrum’s existing and successful partnerships, including with BASF, Continental and the bicycle tyre manufacturer Ralf Bohle (Schwalbe).
