New tyres made from recycled plastic bottles
Continental Tyres has released a commercial tyre made using polyester recycled from PET bottles
Plastic PET (polyethylene terephthalate) waste is a worldwide scourge. The material is produced from petroleum products, contributing to carbon emissions, and often ends up in landfills, where it can remain for hundreds of years. Although technically recyclable, the recycling rate of PET bottles and jars hovers at around 30 per cent. Now, a new tyre from Continental Tyres could help reduce this problem.
