Pyrum Establishes JV in Bavaria

Pyrum Innovations AG (“Pyrum”), a pioneer in the sustainable recycling of end-of-life-tyres (ELT) based on its patented pyrolysis technology, establishes the first joint venture to build and operate a pyrolysis plant in Bavaria.

Under the company name REVALIT GmbH, a recycling plant with a capacity of 20,000 tons of used tyres is to be operated in the port of Straubing near the Danube from 2024. The planned location is characterised by excellent connections to the road network and also offers the possibility of transporting the goods to and from the site by rail and ship. Straubing represents an ideal location for the implementation of the environmentally oriented business.

Besides Pyrum, the shareholders of REVALIT GmbH will be the Munich-based companies MCapital GmbH, TEXTOR GmbH and Auer Holding GmbH, each with 25%. The contract for the start of the development activities and the start of the work for the required approval documents was concluded on the 13th July. Preliminary discussions with the authorities have already taken place. The signing of a reservation agreement with the landowner will take place immediately after the entry of the company in the commercial register. Initial financing discussions with banks are currently underway.

Pascal Klein, CEO of Pyrum Innovations AG said; “We are very pleased about the realisation of our first joint venture and the future cooperation with our new partners. With our planned pyrolysis plant in Bavaria, we will reach an important milestone on the way to the commercial rollout of our pyrolysis technology. “

Jens Weinberger, Managing Director of MCapital GmbH added; “We are proud to have found an innovative partner in pyrolysis technology in Pyrum Innovations AG, with whom we are jointly building our first plant in Bavaria.” Pyrum has been at the forefront of developing the European tyre pyrolysis market and this joint venture maintains their place in the market as an innovator and developer of the sector.
