Former Taylor chief executive Peter Selkirk has joined PyroPure as executive chairman.
Following a six-year period in which PyroPure has developed its micro-scale pyrolysis technology for destroying waste at source, Peter Selkirk will now lead the company as it takes the product to market.
Over this time, PyroPure has received investment from the Sustainable Technology Fund, managed by Disruptive Capital Finance and private investors Rockhopper Investments, which is controlled by venture capitalist Edmund Truell.
Peter Selkirk said: “After extensive research, analysis and refinement, the team at PyroPure has developed a product with the potential to revolutionise waste collection in sectors where the cost of collection is high and where manual collection bears a degree of risk.
“Having laid the foundations and developed a small scale and accessible solution to an ever-growing problem, we now have in place the product, the team and the drive to make PyroPure the ‘next big thing’ in the world of waste disposal.”
