Pyrum’s Dillingen/Saar plant expansion is now close to completion
Pyrum Innovations AG, a leading player in tire pyrolysis, has successfully installed two pyrolysis reactors for its production lines 2 and 3 at its main plant in Dillingen/Saar. This marks a significant milestone in the expansion of the plant and represents the first step towards increasing the recycling capacity of the facility. The CEO of Pyrum Innovations, Pascal Klein, stated that despite various challenges, such as supply chain disruptions, the chip shortage, and the impact of COVID-19, the company expects to complete the expansion on schedule.
The main plant in Dillingen/Saar currently has one production line that has been operating at an industrial scale since 2020. With the addition of two 25-meter tall towers, the processing capacity is expected to triple in the future to around 20,000 tonnes of ELT per year. Using Pyrum's patented technology, the reactors convert rubber granulate from end-of-life tires into pyrolysis oil, gas, and recovered carbon black, which are then used by Pyrum's customers as raw materials for the production of new products.
Pyrum's expansion plans include building 15 new plants by 2030 and developing further projects in Bavaria and with Polyfuels and other partners. This will enable the company to better serve the increasing demand for its products and to achieve its goal of setting the standard for all future Pyrum plants. The cold commissioning process, which includes the first loop checks, will begin shortly, marking the start of a new era for Pyrum Innovations in the tire pyrolysis industry.
