Home-grown tyre manufacturer Apollo Tyres has partnered with Tyromer Inc, a leader in the non-chemical devulcanization of end-of-life tyres. Tyromer Inc, through its Indian associate, Tyromer India LLP, is committed to supplying recycled rubber material, produced using its environmentally-sustainable processes, to Apollo Tyres.
P K Mohamed, Chief Advisor, R&D, Apollo Tyres Ltd, said “This partnership with Tyromer is a step towards achieving our sustainability goals, and it also enables us to honour our Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR). Producing new tyres using sustainable raw materials, is currently the most efficient path to meet our circular economy goals.”
This partnership has validated tyre-derived polymer (TDP), produced by Tyromer’s proprietary and patented technology, as the raw material for tyres.
Sam Visaisouk, CEO, Tyromer Inc, said, “We are thankful to the Apollo Tyres’ team for its support of our vision of direct tyre-to-tyre recycling for achieving a tyre circular economy. In the face of climate crisis, not using rubber derived from end-of-life tyres is no longer an option.”
