Pyrum Innovations AG achieves a ‘very good’ rating in imug’s ESG rating

  • Sustainability rating agency imug honours Pyrum with 72 out of a possible 100 points
  • Pyrum’s business model in particular convinces analysts

Pyrum Innovations AG (“Pyrum”, the “Company”, ISIN: DE000A2G8ZX8), a pioneering company that sustainably recycles used tyres with its globally patented, unique pyrolysis technology, has achieved 72 out of 100 points in imug’s ESG rating. The company’s sustainability performance is therefore categorised as “very good” overall. The rating by imug, one of the leading sustainability rating agencies in Germany and a specialist in environmental, social and governance (ESG) research, was carried out in the first quarter of 2023 and is based on several areas of analysis. Pyrum performed particularly well in the “Products and Services” area, among others, where the company received full marks. Here, imug analysed Pyrum’s business model and assessed the positive contribution the company makes to environmental or social development with its products and services.

Pascal Klein, CEO of Pyrum Innovations AG: “With Pyrum, we are making a decisive contribution to the transformation of the economy towards a sustainable circular economy. Our pyrolysis technology is the leading process for recycling used tyres. The Fraunhofer Institute has already confirmed in a ‘Life Cycle Assessment’ that, compared to the current recycling mix in Germany, we can save up to 72 % more CO2 save money. We are very proud that all these benefits have now also contributed to our very good rating in the imug sustainability rating.”

Pyrum Innovations AG had previously been awarded silver status in the EcoVadis sustainability ranking and was able to certify its environmental and quality management system with two ISO standards. With the independent assessment of the company’s sustainability performance by imug, Pyrum can once again strengthen its credibility in its communication with all stakeholders. The rating also creates a basis for sustainable financing and reveals further potential for sustainability management.

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.
