Efficient and scalable technology, unique approach

When embarking upon our waste recycling project in 2008, we chose to combine existing best-in-class technology with novel insights:

Recycle

Mature technology

Pyrolysis is a mature technology used to efficiently process a wide variety of feedstocks. The concept is relatively simple: when plastics are heated in the absence of oxygen, it is transformed back into an oil-like substance.

Trustworthy

80 years of expertise

Instead of developing our own pyrolysis reactor, we teamed up with a reactor manufacturer that boasts over 80 years of expertise in this area.

Ambitious

Higher capacity

We use a reactor with a substantially higher capacity – to ensure economic feasibility.

Low Energy

Our own process control

Together, we took the existing technology to a new level and developed our own process control:

Temperature control: We use extrusion technology to heat the plastic to a specific and controlled temperature, creating an air-tight paste.

Reactor heating: The reactor ensures a very precise, controlled application of heat.

Removal of key contaminants: We have enhanced our process in order to remove key contaminants such as chlorine.

High conversion rate: 100% of the plastic waste is converted through our process.

Cost leadership

Our technology and process are the result of years of R&D and rooted in broad experience of industrial processes.

With a projected capex of EUR 700 per tonne of oil output p/a, our cost structure is highly efficient and considerably lower than that of other plastic recycling companies.

Low carbon footprint

Ensuring circularity and low-carbon processing go hand in hand at Pryme.

The chemical recycling of plastics produces very little CO2 compared to incineration. Moreover, we aim to procure 100% of our electricity needs from renewable sources, thereby ensuring the significantly low carbon footprint of our processes.
