The municipal council of Perl-Besch on the Mosel in Saarland has approved the development plan for the site of the new plant of Pyrum Innovations AG by a large majority. This means that the company has created the necessary prerequisites and can immediately start detailed planning.

As a further step towards expanding its own production capacities, Pyrum plans to build a new pyrolysis plant in Perl-Besch by the end of 2025, modelled on the facility at the main plant in Dillingen/Saar with a capacity of 20,000 tons of end-of-life tires per year. The wholly owned subsidiary “Pyrum GreenFactory II GmbH” was founded at the beginning of January to operate the second Pyrum plant in Saarland.

Pascal Klein, CEO of Pyrum Innovations AG said; “We continue to push the pace. Only around eight weeks have passed between the initial approval of the local and municipal councils for the establishment of Pyrum in December 2023 and the current adoption of the final development plan. After demonstrating with the expansion of our main plant in Dillingen that our technology works and is scalable, we now want to roll out our pyrolysis process on a large scale to sustainably solve the recycling problem with used tyres. To this end, we have already ordered the first plant components with notoriously long delivery times and construction is scheduled to begin in the second half of 2024.”
