JK Tyre's PCR Tyre: 80% Sustainable Material
JK Tyre & Industries Ltd
JK Tyre & Industries, as part of its dedication to sustainable development, has introduced a new tyre called "UX Green" that offers comparable performance to standard radial tyres but with a reduced carbon footprint. Rigorous testing was conducted on roads and test tracks to validate its performance.
The skilled team at JK Tyre, drawing on a decade of research conducted at JK Tyre's Global Tech Centre, has designed and developed the UX Green tyre using sustainable materials as an alternative to conventional petroleum-based materials.
Dr. Raghupati Singhania, Chairman & Managing Director of JK Tyre, expressed his pride in the breakthrough success of the UX Green tyre, which aligns with the company's sustainability goals. With 80% sustainable materials used in its design and development, the tyre reflects JK Tyre's commitment to advancing sustainable growth and carbon neutrality by 2050. The company plans to offer a range of such tyres in the future, reinforcing its dedication to societal value creation.
The UX Green tyre by JK Tyre was consciously developed using a combination of recycled, renewable, and bio-based materials. The tyre features sustainable materials such as natural rubber, bio-attributed SBR and BR, bio-based oil, recycled rubber powder, recovered carbonaceous black, recycled polyester, and steel wire. Many of these materials are certified by ISCC (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification).
