On 21 March, Nynas’ biobased tyre oil NYTEX BIO 6200 was awarded as the top chemicals and compounding innovation of the year at Tire Technology Expo, held in Hannover, Germany in March.

Judged by a fully independent, international panel of journalists and industry experts, the Tire Technology International Awards for Innovation and Excellence are recognized as the industry’s top accolades.

“We are pleased to have received the award for chemicals and compounding innovation of the year,” says Simon Day, VP Sales and Marketing at Nynas. “It is a recognition not only of Nynas’ research and development, but also of our continuous commitment to all aspects of sustainability.”

Designed as a drop-in replacement for conventional oil without any compromise on performance, NYTEX BIO 6200 offers easy conversion and a negative carbon footprint. It is produced using renewable feedstock certified by the globally recognized sustainability certification ISCC Plus, confirming significant and measurable contributions to sustainability.

“Real tyre tests confirm that NYTEX® BIO 6200 not only adds sustainability, but also improves the performance of the tyre,“ adds Simon Day. “We are very proud of this contribution to the reduced environmental footprint of tyres, and we vow to continue our work on providing our partners with innovations that result in lower energy consumption, improved efficiency, recyclability and HSSE in various industry processes and applications.”
