The business has its origins in the medical equipment company, Morgan Automation, now called Morgan Innovation & Technology, which has operated since the 1980’s and specialises in development and manufacture of the advanced Neurotherm pain relief system. The PyroPure® concept was invented in the late 1990’s and in 2002 a separate company was set up to develop the technology under the name Morgan Everett Ltd which went on to win the Carbon Trust and E-Synergy low carbon technology entrepreneur award in 2007. The assets of this company, including staff, were transferred in July 2009 to PyroPure Ltd which has relocated to larger premises and has continued with the project through the development, testing and commercialisation of new versions of PyroPure® technology, incorporating further quality and energy efficiency improvements, winning a Chartered Institute of Waste Management Award for Environmental Excellence in 2010 and gaining further regulatory permissions to operate the system.
