Enabling More Recycled Rubber in Tires
FUNDAMENTAL WORK TO CHARACTERIZE MICRONIZED RUBBER POWDER YIELDS A PATH TOWARD INCREASED RECYCLED CONTENT IN NEW TIRES.
Many new rubber tires on the market contain recycled rubber, but the amount is vanishingly small—less than 1 percent. Research conducted at tire manufacturer Michelin can change this and significantly increase the use of rubber recycled from scrap tires to manufacture new tires.
