Pyrum and Eldan Cooperate on Sales

Pyrum Innovations AG works closer with ELDAN Recycling

Pyrum Plans for Growth with Eldan

Pyrum Innovations AG, a pioneer in the sustainable recycling of end-of-life tyres (ELT) based on its patented pyrolysis technology, is deepening its collaboration with ELDAN Recycling A/S, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of recycling machines, including shredders for ELT.

Pyrum has entered into a sales cooperation with the Danish manufacturer. Under the agreement, both companies will include each other’s systems in their sales processes and actively distribute them.

In addition, Pyrum has ordered a new, more powerful shredder from ELDAN Recycling, which is expected to be delivered to Dillingen by the end of 2022.

Before Pyrum recycles the ELT using its patented pyrolysis technology, the ELT must be shredded. During the shredding process, the rubber components of the tyres are crushed, and steel wire and textile fibres are separated. With the help of the new ELDAN shredder, Pyrum can triple the capacity of the ELT to be processed to up to 7,000 pieces per day. At the same time, the machine enables a significantly better quality and thus higher sales prices of the separated steel.

Pascal Klein, CEO of Pyrum said; “We are very pleased about the agreement with ELDAN. In addition to the significant increase in our shredding capacities, which is also a prerequisite for the commissioning of our two new pyrolysis reactors, we will be able to supply a significantly better steel quality with a much higher purity in the future. This means that our steel wire will also count as raw material in the future and can thus be directly processed into new steel. Furthermore, the sales cooperation shows that ELDAN is convinced of our pyrolysis technology and values it as a sales advantage – a further confirmation of our process.”

The expansion of the production capacities of the pyrolysis plant at the Company’s headquarters in Dillingen/Saar is currently on schedule. The groundworks have been completed as planned and the steel construction work has begun.

Klein says; “Every day when I come to our plant site, I am delighted to see the two new production lines growing. By expanding and tripling our processing capacity to around 20,000 tonnes of ELT per year, we are taking a big step towards meeting the high demand for our products. We currently expect commissioning by the end of this year.”
