Prototype Performance Demonstration on End-User Duty Cycles for Tires Built with Large Reincorporation of Recycled Materials

About

Building off the success of their previous REMADE project, this project aims to increase the TRL for the reincorporation of (1) fine MRP into tire treads and sidewalls (TRL 4 to 7), and (2) fine MRP and rCB in the internal tire constituents (TRL 4 to 6). The selected TRLs represent the next validation step in the path to commercialization and the highest level of validation to date of these recycling technologies for polymeric materials.

Upon completion, this project aspires to reduce primary feedstock by 0.15 million metric tons (MMT) of rubber, reduce energy consumption by 13.5 PJ, and decrease emissions by 0.3 MMCO2e.
