KORBACH, Germany—Sustainability is for the hearty. And that includes tires.
Continental A.G. is pushing some of its most durable tires further with recovered carbon black. The German tire maker said Sept. 12 that Super Elastic solid tires produced at its plant in Korbach were made with rCB supplied by Pyrum Innovations.
With Pyrym, Continental is taking end-of-life tires and turning them into new tires again.
The two companies signed an extended partnership agreement in May, making Pyrum's pyrolysis technologies and subsequent materials an integral part Continental's sustainability aims. The tire maker, after all, intends to produce a complete portfolio of 100-percent sustainable tires by 2050.
