DILLINGEN, Germany—Pyrum Innovations A.G. is set to complete the expansion project at its flagship end-of-life tire pyrolysis plant in Dillingen, which is to become the company's first of a series of industrial-scale tire recycling facilities.
The tire recycler has started commissioning the thermolysis recycling lines two and three, the construction of which started 20 months ago. The start of the compressed air supply is the prelude to gradual commissioning, said Pyrum in a June 16 statement.
Over the next few weeks, all other parts of the entire system will be gradually commissioned, a process which will include a cold start-up and the first test run of the reactors with production taking place.
Once fully operational, the plant will work as a "prototype" of a Pyrum thermolysis recycling plant, which the company aims to roll out across Europe, CEO Pascal Klein said.
According to Pyrum, two new thermolysis reactors were installed in the thermolysis tower of the production lines in February.
