We make plastics circular

Most plastic waste is either incinerated or ends up in a landfill: globally, less than 20% of plastic produced gets recycled. More and more people are expressing their concerns about plastic pollution, and governments, companies and consumers are taking action.

Pryme seeks to contribute to a meaningful solution to the global plastic waste problem by enabling the circularity of plastic. We convert plastic waste into valuable petrochemical products using a proven pyrolysis process that is enhanced with proprietary characteristics and has a low carbon footprint.

Our first plant in Rotterdam will start production in 2022. Once it is operational, we will begin an ambitious roll-out process to realize the enormous potential of our technology through a combination of owned-operated plants and licensing to strategic partners.

13+ years of recycling-focused R&D

Pryme’s roots go back to 2008, when our founder, Johannes van der Endt, invested in an industrial process that converts waste into useful material. After many years of research, the company has developed an efficient and reliable technology capable of transforming large quantities of plastic waste into petrochemical products.
