We conducted a comprehensive life cycle assessment (LCA) to examine the potential environmental impact of our E2C® solutions across the value chain of a long-haul truck tire. According to the LCA, the E2C DX9640 solution can significantly reduce emissions and environmental impacts.
Key findings from the LCA demonstrated that the lower rolling resistance enabled by E2C solutions can improve vehicle fuel economy and results in up to 5% - 6% avoided GHG emissions. In addition, greater durability of tires made with E2C solutions reduces end-of-life tire volumes and decreases the net emissions from tire production required to outfit a truck over its total useful life by more than 10%.Less
Many countries are implementing programs to promote the use of transportation technologies that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, therefore creating a need for more durable, fuel efficient tires.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay® program and the European Union’s Energy Efficiency Tire Labeling regulation seek to educate consumers about the impact of tire performance on fuel economy. At Cabot Corporation, we are passionate about delivering new reinforcing materials to help tire manufacturers meet these current and future market demands. We are the global leader in reinforcing carbons, delivering innovative solutions for tire applications.
