About PyroPure®
PyroPure® is a unique specialist waste technology company, which uses a small scale process to destroy waste at source, avoiding the need for collection, transport and disposal. A PyroPure® unit is a self-emptying waste bin – about the size of a chest freezer – and can handle all types of organic waste.

It sanitises infectious and offensive waste leaving metal and glass for recycling and reduces most organic waste by 99% of its original volume. Hot water is generated and can be used for on-site heating and hot water systems. The process avoids the need for expensive collection and centralised treatment.
