Works Starts at Pyrum in Perl-Besch

Approval for the “clear-cutting” was granted at the end of last week: Clearing work has started as planned at Pyrum project

Pyrum Innovations AG continues to make good progress with its roll-out plan. Yesterday, the first works at the new Pyrum site in Perl-Besch started after the municipal council approved the development plan earlier this month. The plant will be constructed at the Perl-Besh Industrial Park. With the planned start of the clearing work, the site is now being prepared for further construction work. At the end of last week, Pyrum received permission to clear the site, thus creating the basis for the construction area for the new plant and the new shredder. With a size of approximately 8,500 m2, this area is the first construction part of the planned new plant.

Pascal Klein, CEO of Pyrum Innovations AG said; “We are continuing to work at full speed on our roll-out plan and have managed to start work on the new site in just three months. The further approval process with the authorities is already in full swing and we look forward to the start of construction of our new site.”

Pyrum Innovations AG plans to build its second pyrolysis plant in Saarland in Perl-Besch by the end of 2025, based on the model of the main plant in Dillingen/Saar, with a capacity of 20,000 tonnes of end-of-life tyres (ELT) per year, which means doubling the current production capacity. Construction is scheduled to start in the second half of 2024.
