CarbonX: A new spin on CO2 reduction in PCR tires
Thursday, 19th of May, 09:50 hrs
CarbonX will present LCA results comparing the performance and carbon footprint of a commercial Summer PCR tire with one using CarbonX to partially replace silica as well as carbon black.
In this formulation, CarbonX was able to expand the conventional tire performance triangle by improving rolling resistance, abrasion resistance and wet grip simultaneously.
Key findings include a 24kg CO2 reduction per tire over its lifetime based on a 13% improvement in rolling resistance. These savings could help car manufacturers meet the current EU mandate for CO2 emissions for new cars by bringing them 20% closer to their target.
