Nexen Tire Reveals Sustainable-Material Demonstration Tire

Tiremaker unveils demonstration tire with up to 52% sustainable material.

Nexen Tire has announced the unveiling of its sustainable-material demonstration tire composed of 52% sustainable materials and is an example of the company’s extensive activities in pursuit of sustainability.

The tiremaker’s experts used current and emerging technologies to engineer the sustainable tires for demonstration purposes. In addition to being built with 52% sustainable materials, the demonstration tire is made of up of 44 percent renewable materials, including natural rubber, bio-based synthetic rubber and silica derived from rice husk waste residue. Another significant feature of the demonstration tire is that it is made of 8 percent recycled materials using polyester cord formed from recycled plastic PET bottles and bead wire derived from scrap iron using an electric arc furnace.

“This research demonstrates our commitment to becoming one of the most forward-thinking tire companies in terms of ESG,” said a representative at Nexen Tire. “We looked into new technologies and identified opportunities for the future. As a result, our team’s dedication demonstrated our ability to produce a tire with 52% sustainable raw materials. Nexen Tire’s innovation in building a better future continues.”
