AirBoss: the greener tyre
Since the 2003 EU Landfill Directive it is illegal to send whole tyres to landfill sites. Then from July 2006 it became illegal to send shredded tyres to landfill sites.
AirBoss can provide OEMs with just the option for lower carbon emissions, minimal waste rubber and significantly reduced maintenance costs.
With AirBoss segments you benefit from:
Disposing of less rubber
Because only individual segments are being replaced, rather than entire tyres, the quantity of rubber for disposal is dramatically reduced.
Less CO2 emissions
Operators maintain their own tyres with the segmented-tyre system. There is never a need to call out a separate repair vehicle onto site, which clearly avoids unnecessary CO2 emissions.
"Although initiatives such as cryogenic reprocessing have been developed, environmental issues remain an important factor to people that deal with tyres. AirBoss has been keen to approach the issue head-on and our system provides a way for big manufacturers to do their bit." Don Gillanders, AirBoss CEO
Why Using These Tyres Resolves the Waste Disposal Nightmare
Disposing of waste tyres, especially the size of those used by your vehicles can be a headache.
It is now illegal to send tyres (shredded or whole) to landfills for disposal.
For many companies this means hiring a council disposal truck to collect these tyres for recycling. Unfortunately, these trucks are expensive, even more so for larger tyres which occupy the most space.
We've even heard of some construction companies filling disposal trucks with only 100 waste tyres – what a waste of money!
Using AirBoss tyres will:
- Cut costs by filling fewer disposal trucks with more rubber
- Reduce the amount of rubber you need to dispose of
- Minimise the damage you cause to the environment
Reduce the amount of rubber you need to dispose of
If you damage the rubber on an AirBoss tyre, you are only replacing one damaged segment. However, if you damage the rubber on a normal tyre, you have to replace the whole tyre.
So when you use AirBoss tyres you will dispose of much less rubber. This reduces costs and even helps the environment.
Reduce the damage you cause to the environment
Waste tyres are often set on fire. Unfortunately this releases harmful gases which pollute the atmosphere. If you use AirBoss tyres, you can reduce the damage you cause to the environment.
- You will be disposing of far less rubber than other construction companies
- You will considerably limit carbon emissions produced by call-out and recovery vehicles
