Pyrum Innovations AG has received the ISO 14001 certification for its environmental management system following a comprehensive audit.
As a result, the company now meets all the important criteria for being allowed to supply its recovered carbon black (“rCB”) to the automotive industry. The rCB is used in the tyre industry for the production of new tyres, as well as in the plastics and electrical industries. Pyrum had previously received ISO 9001 certification for its quality management system and silver status in the EcoVadis sustainability ranking.
A year ago, Pyrum Innovations AG also signed a development agreement with premium tyre manufacturer Continental to produce high quality recovered carbon black for Continental’s tyre production. The final hurdle has now been cleared with ISO 14001 certification.
Pascal Klein, CEO of Pyrum Innovations AG, said; “The ISO 14001 certification is one of the most important environmental standards and a very important milestone for Pyrum. We now meet all standards of the automotive industry and, at the same time, show that we act in an ecologically responsible way. We also passed the audit without any deviations, which in school grades would be an ‘A plus’. Of course, this is something we are particularly proud of.”
ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that sets requirements for an environmental management system. Companies and organisations can improve their environmental performance by using resources efficiently and avoiding waste. This generates competitive advantages and increases the confidence of all stakeholders. For Pyrum, the certification once again underlines the particularly sustainable impact that the company achieves with its pyrolysis technology for recycling end-of-life tyres.
