Pyrum Innovations AG receives ISO 14001 certification for its environmental management system

  • Following its ISO 9001 certification and silver ranking with EcoVadis, Pyrum has thus reached another important milestone
  • All important criteria for supplying the automotive industry with carbon black have now been met

Dillingen /​Saar, 29 March 2023 – Pyrum Innovations AG (“Pyrum”, the “Company”, ISIN: DE000A2G8ZX8), a pioneering company that sustainably recycles used tyres with its globally patented, unique pyrolysis technology, has received ISO 14001 certification for its environmental management system following a comprehensive audit. This means that the company now fulfils all the important criteria for supplying its carbon black (recovered carbon black, “rCB”) to the automotive industry. The rCB is used in the tyre industry for the production of new tyres, but is also used in the plastics and electrical industries. Pyrum had previously received ISO 9001 certification for its quality management and silver status in the Ecovadis sustainability ranking. A year ago, Pyrum also concluded a development agreement with the premium tyre manufacturer Continental with the aim of producing particularly high-​quality carbon black for Continental’s tyre production. The final hurdle has now been cleared with ISO 14001 certification.

Pascal Klein, CEO of Pyrum Innovations AG: “The ISO 14001 certification is one of the most important environmental standards and an extremely important milestone for Pyrum. We now fulfil all the standards of the automotive industry and at the same time demonstrate that we act in an ecologically responsible manner. We also passed the audit without any deviations, which would be an ‘A+’ in school grades. We are of course particularly proud of this.”

ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that specifies requirements for an environmental management system. Companies and organisations can improve their environmental performance by using resources efficiently and avoiding waste. This generates competitive advantages and strengthens the trust of all stakeholders. For Pyrum, the certification once again underlines the particularly sustainable impact that the company achieves with its pyrolysis technology for recycling used tyres.

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.
