Dillingen /​Saar, 20 July 2023 – Pyrum Innovations AG (“Pyrum”, the “Company”, ISIN: DE000A2G8ZX8), a pioneer in the sustainable recycling of end-​of-​life tyres (ELTs) based on its patented pyrolysis technology, has been nominated for the “Rising Star” award. This is part of the European Small and Mid-​Cap Awards and is a joint initiative of the Federation of European Securities Exchanges (FESE), the European Commission and EuropeanIssuers. This year, Pyrum is the only German company among the nominees in this category.

About Pyrum Innovations AG

Pyrum Innovations AG is active in the attractive recycling market for used tyres and various plastics with its patented thermolysis technology. Pyrum’s thermolysis 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 thermolysis 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 field of used tyre recycling to receive REACH registration from the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) for the thermolysis 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 thermolysis 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.
