Reactors installed in plants 2 and 3 — expansion of the main plant in Dillingen/​Saar now on the home straight

  • Loop checks are due to begin shortly; final pipe and cabling work is curr­ently underway
  • Expan­sion of shredder and pyro­lysis plant can begin cold commis­sio­ning on sche­dule despite major disrup­tions to inter­na­tional supply chains
  • New faci­li­ties will greatly expand produc­tion capa­ci­ties to around 20,000 tonnes of used tyres per year in future

Dillingen /​Saar, 8 February 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 instal­la­tion of the two pyro­lysis reac­tors for produc­tion lines 2 and 3 at its main plant in Dillingen/​Saar. This marks an important mile­stone in the expan­sion of the plant. The first tests of the installed compon­ents can begin shortly. These so-called loop checks repre­sent the first step in cold commissioning.

Pascal Klein, CEO of Pyrum Inno­va­tions AG: “The so-called marriage — the instal­la­tion of the finished engine in a machine — of the two new reac­tors is a signi­fi­cant moment in the history of our company. With the two new produc­tion lines, our main plant will in future have the recy­cling capa­city that we are plan­ning as stan­dard for all new Pyrum plants. We are very proud that despite the major chal­lenges, such as the disrup­tions in the global supply chains, the chip shortage, Covid-19 and the extreme price increases, we expect to be able to complete the expan­sion of our main plant on sche­dule. The new faci­li­ties will enable us to meet the enormous demand for our products even better in future.”

Pyrum’s main plant in Dillingen/​Saar consists of a produc­tion line that has been opera­ting on an indus­trial scale since 2020. In addi­tion to this pyro­lysis reactor, Pyrum has built two further towers around 25 metres high since the end of 2021. Pyrum’s patented tech­no­logy is used in the reac­tors to convert rubber granu­late from used tyres into pyro­lysis oil, gas and reco­vered carbon black (rCB), which in turn are used by Pyrum’s custo­mers as raw mate­rials for the manu­fac­ture of new products. With this expan­sion, the proces­sing capa­city can be tripled to around 20,000 tonnes of used tyres per year in the future. In addi­tion, Pyrum is curr­ently plan­ning the cons­truc­tion of 15 new plants by 2030.

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.
