From “waste” to value –
all over the world
Today more than ever, companies are faced with rising waste disposal costs and legislation aimed at reducing waste while promoting recycling.
At PYREG, we have the technology and innovative solutions to meet these demanding requirements. PYREG’s systems can convert your residues into valuable biochar and energy. At the same time, they offer a proven solution that helps reduce your carbon footprint and waste volume and sanitise your residues.

GREEN ENERGY PRODUCTION, LOCAL HEATING NETWORK IN Switzerland
At IWB’s (Industrielle Werke Basel) own site in the Kleinhüningen district of Basel, innovative pyrolysis technology is used to carbonize previously unused, low-grade biomass such as green waste. The heat released in this process is used for the local IWB district heating network, and the biochar (550 tons annually) is used as a soil conditioner in the agricultural field. The CO2 stored in the biochar remains in the soil and is not released back into the atmosphere. CO2 is thus actively removed from the cycle. The addition of biochar contributes to the fertility of the soil. It stores water, provides a habitat for important microorganisms and binds harmful substances
+ Transformation from previously unused biomass into high quality Biochar
+ 550 tons of biochar yearly is used as a soil improver
+ 4,5 gigawatt hours of energy is used to supply 170 households through the district heating networks per year
Recycling of waterborne litter
Polluted waters are a worldwide problem. Especially in countries without a governmental disposal system, this problem becomes an enormous sustainability and even health issue.
In order to reduce the mixed waste in rivers and waters, a solution is needed that can recycle the waste without having to separate it first. The PYREG system offers just that. It is located right on site. Therefore, no waste needs to be transported to distant incinerator plants. It can be recycled on site, without harmful CO2 emissions and without costly separation. The first system will go into operation in India in 2021.
+ Recycle mixed waste in a sustainable way
+ Reducing the waste volume ip to 90%
+ On site recycling
+ Avoidance of Co2 emissions
+ Reduction of transportation costs

Recycle residual materials an improve CO2 balance
The PYREG system enables upcycling of different residuals into clean biochar. Through closed-loop material cycles, the sustainable and climate-friendly carbonization-technology contributes to the reduction of CO2 emissions.

without prior sorting. The resulting homogeneous biochar can, e.g. be used as a filler in further integrated processes.

“Our vision is to co-locate biochar production at large sources of biomass feedstock (byproducts from Maine’s vast working forests), thereby driving a true circular economy, through the application of innovative NetZero technology. Using a proven process, we will use these forestry byproducts to produce an end product that nourishes soils, cleans water and removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, while simultaneously generating renewable energy. To make this vision a reality, we have chosen PYREG as our strategic partner. We are thrilled to be walking this path together and doing good – not only for the region, but also for the world.”

“Our goal is to provide our customers with a complete, efficient and cost-effective solution which continually creates an add value. By integrating PYREG technology at the respective sites and making additional use of
the bioenergy generated, we have achieved this in a sustainable manner.”

protection, as carbon remains contained in the soil for hundreds of years (carbon sink). Over the course of time we have put three PYREG plants into operation – what better proof can there be that we stand by our ecologically and economically sensible decision?”

” How do I treat sewage sludge correctly? This question is of crucial importance for modern wastewater treatment. On the one hand, the disposal of sewage sludge incurs high costs. On the other hand, it can be used as a valuable energy and nutrient resource.
In this context we were looking for a partner and found it in PYREG. Together we offer the planning and realization of a sustainable sewage sludge utilization concept with integration of our sewage sludge dryer ELODRY®️ and the PYREG®️ carbonization plant – with integrated holistic heat recovery and utilization concept.
This was implemented for the first time 10 years ago at the Linz Unkel wastewater treatment plant. This was followed by further projects in which we successfully cooperated. Since then, we have been jointly offering customized plant concepts for municipalities as partners.
