NYTEX® BIO 6200 achieves high ranking

Nynas bio-based tyre oil NYTEX® BIO 6200 is currently ranked as one of most important sustainability projects by the European Rubber Journal.

The European Rubber Journal (ERJ) is a leading international publication with a focus on the tyre and rubber industry. Since 2020, they have been inviting the industry to participate in a sustainability initiative – Elastomers for Sustainability (E4S) – in order to highlight significant advances for end-user sectors when it comes to, for example, automotive components, industrial products and tyres, as well as consumer, medical and other GRGs.

From the 20 strongest candidates, an independent group of experts from the field of polymer science and technology, under the leadership of Professor James Busfield, assesses each project on the basis of factors including level of innovation, commercial potential and contribution to sustainability.

In the most recent ranking, Nynas’ bio-based tyre oil NYTEX® BIO 6200 was named the 2nd most important sustainability project happening in the elastomers/rubber industry right now.

– NYTEX® BIO 6200 not only contributes to higher sustainability in tyres but also offers the same high performance the market has come to recognise and expect from Nynas conventional as well as other well established tyre oils, says Dr. Kamyar Alavi, Senior Specialist Nynas Naphthenics.
