Pyrum Innovations A.G. has taken delivery of old bicycle tyres for recycling from Ralf Bohle, the manufacturer of Schwalbe brand of bicycle tyres.

Pyrolysis Solution for Bicycle Tyres

Last September the two companies signed an agreement to deal with waste bicycle tyres. Bicycle tyres are notoriously problematic for ambient shredders as the bead wire tends to wrap around shredder arbors.

In a further development, Bohle will consider how it can use Pyrum’s recovered Carbon Black in the production of new bicycle tyres.

"Together with our partner, we want to contribute to making the bicycle even more sustainable," said Pascal Klein, CEO of Pyrum Innovations A.G.
