Apollo Tyres and Tyromer Inc announce Sustainable Material Partnership

Taking forward its commitment to Sustainability, Apollo Tyres has partnered with Tyromer Inc, a leader in non-chemical devulcanisation of end-of-life tyres. Tyromer Inc, through their Indian associate, Tyromer India LLP, is committed to supplying recycled rubber material, produced using its environmentally sustainable processes, to Apollo Tyres.

Announcing the partnership with Tyromer, P K Mohamed, Chief Advisor, R&D, Apollo Tyres, 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 the sustainable raw materials, is currently, the most efficient path to meet our circular economy goals.”

Commenting on the partnership, Dr 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.

Tyre-derived polymer (TDP) trivia:

  • Using a tonne of TDP saves GHG emissions equivalent to four passenger vehicles driven for a year.
  • Producing a tonne of TDP requires less than two MWh of energy, compared to over 20 MWh required for new material.
