In Sweden, tyre pyrolysis technology developer Scandinavian Enviro Systems AB (Enviro) has announced that it has received a recovered tyre pyrolysis oil order from compatriot oil refiner and transportation fuel distributor Preem AB. The oil will be delivered in the first quarter of 2023 and used by Preem for production tests.

Preem is Sweden’s largest fuel company and has high environmental ambitions, for example, the company has communicated its target to produce 5 million m3 of renewable fuel and to achieve climate neutrality along its entire value chain by 2035.

Preem will use the delivered oil as a raw material for production tests to determine how suitable it is for the production of different low-carbon transportation fuels.

These tests will take place at Preem’s refinery in Lysekil, which has already been granted a permit to conduct production tests of tyre pyrolysis oil.

This order is very important for us since it is yet more confirmation of the commercial potential of our oil and our recycling technology. A large player in the oil industry in our own home market taking this step provides important support for our expansion in both Sweden and internationally, said Thomas Sörensson, CEO of Enviro.

The pyrolysis oil will be produced at Enviro’s plant in Åsensbruk where Enviro extracts oil from, for example, end-of-life tyres (ELT) using its proprietary and patented recycling technology.

Worth SEK 2 million (≈ EUR 182 100) the order will be delivered in the first quarter of 2023.

ISCC and REACH approval

Pyrolysis oil contains a high percentage of renewable material due to the high amounts of natural rubber found in vehicle tyres, and according to Enviro, is very suitable for producing environmentally low-carbon and renewable transportation fuels.

In the past year, Enviro’s pyrolysis oil has been certified under the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) EU standard and has received REACH approval.

REACH is the European Parliament and Council’s regulation concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals.

Furthermore, a subsidiary of a leading US oil company has carried out successful production tests of Enviro’s tyre pyrolysis oil.
