Less greenhouse emissions
It is possible to minimize the carbon dioxide emissions that are inevitably caused by tyre manufacturing. While manufacturing a new tyre produces about 220 kg of carbon dioxide, retreading produces only about 40 kg of emissions.
E-tread product line
The new Nokian E-tread product range saves raw materials and energy even more than usual. We have developed a new way to recycle our superior rubber compound with an innovative process. This ensures that the final quality remains at a high level.
Oil and rubber
Each retreading saves about 40 kg of rubber compared to a new tyre. About 70 liters of unrenewable oil is also saved for each tyre. And both effects accumulate with two retreads.
Production of Noktop retreading materials is optimized for minimal effect on the environment. The solvent vapours (volatile organic compounds, VOC) generated in the manufacturing are collected and fed to a catalytic boiler plant.
The steam needed in the manufacturing is produced in an ultramodern carbon neutral boiler plant, utilizing local biomass and industrial surplus material. This is one way Nokian Tyres reduces its carbon footprint.
