Our innovative technology and operating expertise are the result of over 25 years of combined development and investment. Beginning with small-scale pilot plants in Holland and Germany, we originally expanded to complete production on large commercial facilities in Germany, and most recently in Terre Haute, Indiana. The latter of these is our first US production facility and consists of 20 batch ovens, producing approximately 13,000 metric tons of rCB annually. Planning has already commenced for the construction of a second US plant on the same Terre Haute site, doubling our US capacity.
Throughout our history, Pyrolyx has cultivated partnerships with various leaders in the industry, beginning with its acquisition of CCT GmbH in June 2015 and the joint venture with Reklaim, Inc. in December 2016. Pyrolyx has focused on gaining product approval for its rCB over the past eight years, which has forged successful customer relationships with global leaders in tire and masterbatch production.
Our history of over €50 million in research and development costs, and a combined 15 years (Reklaim, cct and Pyrolyx) of developing intellectual and operating knowhow has underpinned Pyrolyx’s success and competitive advantage.
