Environmental effects while using a tyre
while using a tyre
Most of the tyre’s environmental impacts are generated during tyre use. The most important in-use impact is the
vehicle’s fuel consumption. Tyre consumption can be reduced by lowering the tyre’s weight and rolling resistance, consequently reducing exhaust fume emissions and the formation of greenhouse gases. However, the most significant factor affecting the level of exhaust fume emissions is the driver’s driving style. Economic driving can generate 10–20 per cent savings in fuel consumption.
