SUSTAINABLE TYRES GIVE A BETTER DRIVE
Sumitomo Rubber Industries is committed to improving global environmental protection in tyre production. The core topics involved in the issue are fuel savings, use of sustainable raw materials and careful husbanding of resources. Under these watchwords, Falken continuously analyses and optimises the manufacturing processes and components used to produce Falken tyres. A key part of the company’s activities in this respect comprises advanced research into biosynthetic mechanisms that extends into the nanostructure level of the tyre’s structure. This research is making it possible to produce natural rubber using environmentally compatible methods, and thus manufacture products that are both sustainable and at the forefront of technology.
