Apollo Tyres, a prominent tyre manufacturer, has created tyres using 75% sustainable materials. This fits with the company's sustainability goals of using 40% more raw materials from sustainable sources by 2030.

The concept Agriculture tyres, containing 75% sustainable materials, are comprised of nine unique compounding components. These include recycled rubber, sustainable carbon black derived from end-of-life tyres, bio-based oil, recycled nylon, and bead wire with higher recycled content. The base polymers used in these tyres are GPSNR-certified and sourced from bio-circular feedstock.

P K Mohamed, Chief Advisor, R&D, Apollo Tyres Ltd., said, “This is a big milestone in the sustainability journey of Apollo Tyres. Being the early movers in this space, especially in India, and with investments in R&D and manufacturing towards achieving the 40% sustainable material target by 2030, we have been able to develop this tyre with 75% sustainable materials, which is now being tested extensively before being commercialised.”

This cutting-edge Agri tyre was produced at Apollo Tyres' Perambra plant located in Kerala, South India. This plant is the company's first manufacturing facility.
