Sustainability and the circular economy. These two ideas are the focus of both global corporations and the media. Consumption of resources and the one-time use of tires pose a huge environmental challenge.
Millions of tires are cast off in landfills, and this global issue continues to grow daily. Compounding issues, tire companies today are forced to use only virgin rubber to create new tires.
The tire industry also faces other problems. Cost increases in energy, product and production result in revenue reductions. A suitable, practical solution is needed to produce sustainable tires. Michelin, for example, has announced its “Butterfly” program. The goal of this program is to create a tire with 30 percent recycled content
by 2048. Michelin’s challenge of producing the “Impossible Tire” seems to be just that. New rubber compounding technology is required to achieve this goal.
Suppose in the future a compound became available that, when added to old tires, would make that rubber sustainable, to be used over and over. Genesis evolution now has the technology to offer a unique solution to these problems. The compound, Genesis, when added to the rubber of used tires, creates new sustainable tires. These tires have a significantly high recycled rubber content in their tread formation. This
compound has been tested repeatedly with positive results. Worldwide sites for testing include the United Kingdom, Canada, Oregon and Florida for a period of years.
A circular economy, which aims to reduce waste and make the most of resources, opposes a traditional, linear economy, which has had a “taking, making, disposing” cycle. A systemic shift away from being satisfied with the status quo is required. Genesis evolution offers a new opportunity for tire companies. With this compounding tool and a set of specially formulated nano polymers, Genesis evolution expects impressive growth levels in the next three to five years.
The proposal that follows describes more specifically this innovative company. Also included are goals and objectives, a needs assessment, budget forms and a management plan.
