Lanxess helps fleets save with ‘green’ tires
ERJ staff report (BC)
Cologne – Synthetic rubber Lanxess aims to help fleet managers reduce the fuel consumption of their vehicles and hence their operating costs by switching their vehicles to high-quality tires with low rolling resistance (“green tires”).
The “Lanxess Vehicle Fleet Calculator” determines individually how much can be saved, the payback period for the investment in green tires, and the potential for reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
The calculator’s algorithm also evaluates further potential fuel savings and environmental impacts for other improvements such as optimising tire pressures, maintaining accurate front wheel alignment, and special driver training programmes.
Lanxess developed the Fleet Calculator in collaboration with the Technical University of Munich. It is available free of charge via the Internet.
