Vipal praises Select Tyres
Chelmsford-based retreader’s energy reduction efforts lauded
Many companies in Europe are managing to reduce electricity costs in the tyre retreading process, bringing an even greater return to the business and the environment. One example is Select Tyres, located Chelmsford, which currently produces 800 tyres per month and distributes retreaded tyres throughout the UK.
The retreader has a plate system for capturing solar energy that generates a very significant economy for the business. Select Tyres also receives a reimbursement from the government, because the surplus of energy generated goes directly to the public network, serving other consumers in the region.
“Initiatives like these, aimed at reducing electricity consumption, are of the utmost importance. In the European Community, tyre retreading has been considered a green industry for a long time. Now, companies are investing in solar energy to make the business even more sustainable. For this reason, Select Tyres must be congratulated for the initiative,” says Leonardo Muller from Vipal Europe Commercial Department, one of the world’s leading tyre retreaders and suppliers.
“When it comes to retreading systems, we can see the importance of these processes for the environment, where the ecosystem benefits in many ways, failing to extract nonrenewable sources and, at the same time, reusing the materials,” says Muller. “The tyre retreading system is a process that has brought benefits to both suppliers and consumers, as well as to the planet itself. All this process represents savings for the consumer and generates profit for transport companies, establishing a healthy balance between development needs and the environment,” he concludes.
