Sustainable resources of the future

Valuable secondary raw materials for industry

In Pyrum Innovations AG’s unique, patented thermolysis process, several high-​quality secondary raw materials are obtained in an environmentally friendly way.

First, the components of used car and truck tyres are separated mechanically. Steel wire sorted out with the help of powerful metal separators is sent to steelworks, textile fibres are turned into insulating material. The rubber from the used tyres is shredded into granulate in twin-​shaft shredders and mills. The rubber granulate with variable grain sizes can be used to manufacture a wide range of sustainable, durable products or recycled into other secondary raw materials. 

In Pyrum thermolysis plants, the rubber granulate is broken down into other valuable secondary raw materials in the absence of oxygen: Coke or rCB (recovered Carbon Black) for the rubber and plastics industry, crude oil for the chemical industry and gas. In the tyre thermolysis plant of Pyrum Innovations AG, the gas obtained is converted into electricity in a CHP unit. This makes the entire recycling plant energy self-sufficient.
