Climate change has become a monster in recent years with drought, floods, bushfires, heat waves, tornadoes, dangerous storms, health impacts, erosion in coastal areas and insect outbreaks being serious concerns directly linked to global climate change.
This has led to increased awareness around the ongoing climate crisis and various measures within the transport industry are being undertaken in order to mitigate the effects of climate change.
Manufacture of retreaded tyres and electric vehicles have been some of the effective ways adopted by the industry and are quickly gaining popularity. In fact, the UK has already announced a ban on all non-zero emission vehicles by 2035.
Fossil fuels used to manufacture petroleum products have been strongly linked to global warming and more effort has been put in phasing it out completely but little circumventing has taken place on how tyres affect our environment.
Over the years, tyres have been a real environmental hazard on roadsides and landfills though things are changing now and many tyre manufacturing companies are looking for ways to become more eco-friendly in their tyre production through recycling old tyres.
Tyre retreading is simply the process of revamping old tyres. In the past few years, tyre retreading has gained popularity in the South African market as more sophisticated systems and computer-controlled equipment are utilized to retread tyres that provide an excellent alternative to brand new tyres—and at a lower cost.
The process of retreading tyres uses techniques that attach the veneer to the old tyre so as to make it unique and as good as new, making it even difficult to differentiate between a new or old tyre.
Tyres can be retreaded severally helping reduce pollution and save the environment. This helps defer millions of tyres headed for landfills and putting them back into use for thousands of more miles.
And just imagine this, when 15 million tyres are retreaded every year, it translates to about 225 million gallons of oil savings each year.
