05 June 2015 Exactly one year after the construction of the pyrolysis plant Empyro started, the plant’s festive opening took place on 20 May 2015. The opening ceremony was conducted by the Province of Overijssel’s representative, Eddy van Hijum, who filled a tank truck with pyrolysis oil. Empyro produces oil from wood residues within a few seconds, whereas nature takes a few million years to do the same. This revolutionary new plant is a result of the fruitful collaboration between academia, industry and the Dutch government and is a big step ahead towards a bio-based economy.
