|4th Dresden Workshop - TIRES: "Green" Tire Concepts|
"Green" tires first emerged as a sustainable concept in the 1990s. Rubber chemists and tire engineers discovered that tire rolling resistance was improved, if they used silanetreated silica as a reinforcing filler in tread compounds, instead of the traditional carbon black.
Meanwhile, it became generally accepted that use of "green" tires could enlarge application of renewable resources and save millions of barrels of oil per year and would also reduce carbon dioxide emissions significantly.
The latest findings will be presented and discussed in the 4th Dresden Tire Workshop. Similar, like in the previous workshops of this series, this one-day event aims to bring together experts with extensive experience in research, development, management and education in order to discuss innovative approaches and perspectives. The 4th Dresden Tire Workshop addresses members in research, development and managing positions of tire and automotive industries as well as manufacturers of corresponding tire raw materials.
