Valuable resources: recycling through pyrolysis creates new markets and protects the environment
Scarcity of resources, rising raw material prices and the move away from fossil fuels: in view of these challenges, innovative recycling concepts for the recovery of resources and the simultaneous generation of environmentally friendly energies are in demand. One of them used to be considered cost-inefficient, but is now increasingly becoming the focus of companies: the recycling of discarded materials or residual materials by means of pyrolysis. According to the coalition agreement of the German government, coal burning is to be phased out before 2038 if possible. Instead of coal from open-cast mines, the energy sources of the future could be obtained, for example, from the combustion of wood pellets or other organic residues.
