Pyrum and Siemens in partnership to further develop pyrolysis tech

Germany-based Pyrum Innovations, a pioneer in the sustainable recycling of end-of-life tyres (ELT) based on its patented pyrolysis technology, has entered into a partnership agreement with the technology group Siemens.

The aim of the partnership is to further promote, optimise and scale Pyrum’s pyrolysis plants technologically and economically with Siemens’ digitalisation and automation portfolio. Pyrum and Siemens share the goal of developing sustainable technologies as well as promoting their respective economic growth.

The partnership provides for Siemens to support Pyrum and Pyrum’s customers in the selection of optimal technology in the areas of process automation, process analytics, drive technology and digitalisation, among other things.

In addition, Siemens will help, for example, with the optimisation of process procedures as well as with training and further education, for example by jointly organising workshops and training sessions.

The plan is to start implementing the various measures immediately. After BASF and Continental, the partnership with Siemens is already Pyrum’s third agreement with a well-known German industrial company. In addition, there are further cooperations with numerous internationally operating companies, such as Michelin, Pirelli, Schwalbe or Eldan.

Pascal Klein, CEO of Pyrum Innovations, said, “We are constantly trying to develop our pyrolysis plants and increase both productivity and user-friendliness in order to continue to provide the best offer on the market. We are convinced that our partnership with Siemens will make our pyrolysis plants even more attractive to existing and potential customers. In doing so, we are driven by the long-term goal of achieving a circular economy in ELT recycling as soon as possible.”

Pyrum Innovations is active in the attractive recycling market for end-of-life-tyres with its patented pyrolysis technology. Pyrum’s pyrolysis process is said to be energy self-sufficient, saves a large portion of the CO2 emissions normally generated during the disposal of end-of-life-tyres in a cement plant and produces new raw materials such as pyrolysis oil, gas and recovered carbon black from the waste used as input materials. In this way, Pyrum closes the recyclable material loop and pursues a completely sustainable business model.
