Pyrum Innovations
is an innovative recycling technology company based in Germany. On the basis of the worldwide patented, unique thermolysis process, the company develops, builds and operates recycling plants, with the help of which Pyrum extracts raw materials of high quality from used tires, rubber and plastic waste and feeds them back into the material cycle. The raw materials obtained include thermolysis oil, for which Pyrum has received REACH certification, and recovered carbon black (rCB).

In addition, Pyrum markets the thermolysis recycling plants worldwide and supplies them to its contractual partners.

In September 2020, BASF acquired a stake in Pyrum Innovations AG as part of its ChemCyclingTM project and guarantees the acceptance of the thermolysis oil produced both in its own plants as well as in the plants of its contractual partners.

Advantages of the Pyrum Thermolysis-Technology:

100% autonomous energy supply

Conserving 98% of CO2 emissions

Flexible upgradable system

Recovery of raw material from waste

The Pyrum Spirit

Pyrum began with the idea of four friends in a 9 m2 arbour and is today one the world leaders in thermolysis recycling with a unique and patent protected technology. Since the company was founded in 2008, we have developed, planned and built everything ourselves, from our own laboratory to a large-scale industrial recycling plant. The way to the world market leader is not yet finished, but Pyrum has already mastered the biggest hurdles.

The Pyrum story has shown that nothing is impossible as long as you believe in yourself and your cause. Many people have warned us that the thermolysis process is impossible because hundreds have failed before. But as the saying goes: "Everyone said it was impossible, then someone who didn't know that came along and just did it".

We will continue to remain true to our values and think outside the box to help solve the world's waste problems.
