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.
