On average, new cars sold in the European Union last year emitted three per cent less carbon dioxide than those sold in 2014. Yet average CO2 output was still close to 25 grams per kilometre – or more than 20 per cent – above the 95 gram limit the EU has set for 2020. Achieving the 2020 goal requires a further drop in vehicle running resistance, and car makers expect tyre OEMs to contribute to this goal by offering even lighter products with lower rolling resistance. This push for greener tyres that weigh less is music to the ears of the industry’s market-leading aramid supplier.
