Michelin commits to increasing Recycled content of tires


NEW YORK (Scrap Register): Michelin North America said it will invest in technologies to increase both the recycled content of tires and the percentage of tires that get recycled.

Michelin tires currently contain 2 percent recycled steel or tire rubber, which Michelin aims to increase to 30 percent recycled content by 2048.

The company also is pursuing research and developing partnerships to identify new ways to recycle tires and find new markets so that 100 percent of its vehicle tires are recycled by 2048.

Globally, 70 percent of tires are currently recovered and 50 percent are recycled, it notes.
