Pyrum Innovations AG: Hot commissioning of lines 2 and 3 started in Dillingen

  • Produc­tion start imminent
  • The throughput of reactor 2 will soon be increased to 75 %, followed by line 3

Dillingen /​Saar, 30 October 2023 — Pyrum Inno­va­tions AG (“Pyrum”, the “Company”, ISIN: DE000A2G8ZX8), a pionee­ring company that sustain­ably recy­cles used tyres with its globally patented, unique pyro­lysis tech­no­logy, announces the successful start of the warm commis­sio­ning of reac­tors 2 and 3 at its main plant in Dillingen/​Saar. This means that the first oil will soon be produced from the new plants. The licen­sing autho­ri­ties have already given the green light for the start of production.

In the last few weeks, cold commis­sio­ning has been completed and all parts have been cali­brated and tested. Auto­matic opera­tion has already been tested over several weeks and staff trai­ning has been completed. The system has been filled with all media, the leak test has been carried out and is ready for produc­tion. As soon as this has started, the throughput of the first new line will be succes­si­vely ramped up to 75 %. All the expe­ri­ence gained from line 2 is then trans­ferred to line 3 and line 3 is also ramped up to a throughput of 75 % as quickly as possible. Both lines are then gradu­ally ramped up to 100 %. The entire process up to full capa­city utili­sa­tion is carried out as quickly as possible, but can take several months.

Pascal Klein, CEO of Pyrum Inno­va­tions AG: “We are very pleased that we will soon be starting produc­tion in our two new lines. The cold commis­sio­ning, which has already been completed, and the hot commis­sio­ning, which has already started, have gone extre­mely well and we are very satis­fied. We are now on the last few metres of our site expan­sion in Dillingen, tripling our capa­city to 20,000 tonnes of used tyres per year. At the same time, our work on six other sites is progres­sing rapidly.”

In addi­tion, the ESG rating agency EcoVadis once again awarded Pyrum Inno­va­tions AG silver status in its annual recer­ti­fi­ca­tion, confir­ming the sustaina­bi­lity of the Pyrum busi­ness model.

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.
