Or 15 tyres/minute…That’s roughly how many tyre casings on average Bandag recycles worldwide, every day, around the clock. Saving on raw materials and energy consumption and drastically reducing waste.
*Bandag Global figures
It takes Bandag just a fraction of the energy to produce quality retreads in comparison with new tyres, adding up to 80% less CO2 and other carbon emissions.
Thanks to the re-use of all those tyre casings, Bandag retreads contain up to 75% recycled material. Making them even better for the environment.
Manufacturing a quality retread uses on average 70L less oil, 32kg less rubber and 14kg less steel* than a new tyre. Worldwide over the course of a year, that adds up very quickly!
