The tyre industry’s efforts to achieve higher levels of sustainability have been gaining strength in recent years, and this is reflected in the explicit sustainability targets communicated from several producers.

To learn more, log in to Nynas Senior Specialist, Dr Kamyar Alavi’s presentation at Tire Technology Virtual “Live” 2021 on 8 June at 10:00 CEST. In his talk, Dr Alavi will take a closer look at raw materials such as polymers, fillers and plasticizers made from renewable resources, and discuss how they can be used as alternatives or complements to traditional raw materials.
The environmental impact of tyres comes mainly from their usage, but also to quite some extent from the raw materials. Making more environmentally friendly tyres thus requires using more renewable and recyclable material.Read more about How to lower the ECO footprint of a tyre
