ERJ staff report (DS)
Beijing - The director of a Double Coin research lab has outlined the company's plan for developing high-tech 'Green' tyres. Fiu Soubo said the aim is to develop a tyre with good elasticity, rolling resistance, low fuel consumption, low heat and abrasion resistance, puncture resistance, large carrying capacity, ride comfort.
A long report on the CRIA website outlined the steps needed to achieve such tyres. LI Hua Ting, deputy chief engineer of the Beijing Research and Design Institute of Rubber Industry said "Tire rubber consumption accounts for more than 60% of the total production of the tyre.â€
Yang Xiuxia, chief technologist at The China Petrochemical Economic and Technology Research Institute said new labeling requirements will increase demand for SSBR (SSBR), Nd-BR (neodymium polybutadiene rubber). He called on domestic rubber manufacturers to develop these materials.
Soubo added that China is developing its own standards for consumer tyre labels.
