June 18, 2024

Yokohama TWS is "harnessing renewable resources and employing advanced production techniques" to reduce the carbon footprint of its tires.

"For instance, the TM1 Eco Power tire, engineered for both electric and fuel-powered tractors, incorporates 65% bio-based and recycled materials," offering optimal performance "at the highest environmental standards," according to Yokohama TWS officials.

They add that the XP1000 material handling tire is "crafted from high-performance compounds made with recycled materials, ensuring longevity and significant emissions reduction."

And in the construction segment, the company's EMR Range - which is designed for loader, grader and dump truck applications - comes with "a robust carcass to support eventual retreading."
