ERJ staff report (DS)
Beijing - China is attempting to boost the number of tyres that are retreaded. A long report on the CRIA website, originally published in the Economic Herald, gives some data on the retread activity in the country.
The report suggests that the retread plan remains largely on paper and the reality on the ground is chaotic, with over 80 preent of capacity focussed on small companies who often do not have adequate quality.
Most retreaders process less than 20,000 units each year with very few processing more than 100,000 units. Overall, said the report, less than 3 perent of tyres are retreaded.
