CarbonX Selected to Join
Dutch Delegation to CES 2023 in Las Vegas
Delft, Netherlands – 28 September 2022 – CarbonX announces it has been selected amongst 70 companies to represent the Netherlands at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, an internationally renowned global tech event, taking place 5-8 January 2023. CarbonX will participate in the official kick-off taking place at CES Unveiled Amsterdam on 13 October 2022 at the Beurs van Berlage Convention Centre.
Rutger van Raalten, CarbonX CEO & co-founder, says: “We are very proud that CES has recognized our potential to help companies address climate change through material innovation. It’s exciting that achieving greater sustainability through performance is once again at the heart of tire industry, particularly when it comes to fuel efficiency and reducing tire and road wear particles.”
Because of its unique structure, CarbonX® allows tiremakers to overcome the limitations of conventional materials and thus achieve better fuel efficiency and higher durability at the same time. Using CarbonX® in tires on a global scale taps into significant potential savings of 76 million tonnes CO2 in absolute emissions every year.
CES 2023 committed to highlighting sustainability-driven tech innovations
Like last year, the Netherlands delegation will be present in two pavilions at CES 2023: ‘The Netherlands Tech Square’ for start-ups and the ‘Next Level Innovations Pavilion’ for scale-ups. As one the world’s largest tech events, CES continues to strengthen its focus and draw attention to companies developing creative solutions that address global challenges and improve lives around the world.
In the coming months, CarbonX will follow a training program offered by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency to fully prepare for the global stage of CES.
2023 will mark the seventh year the Netherlands participates in CES. Over the past six years, more than 250 Dutch companies have visited CES as part of the Dutch delegation – generating an estimated 10,000 high-quality jobs and adding value to the Dutch economy.
