The Swedish company also said, that when compared to virgin rubber, the usage of their recycled carbon black allows for a “carbon dioxide reduction” of over 60 percent.

“The fact that Volvo Cars is now adopting environmental rubber that uses our recycled carbon black in its production is a major commercial breakthrough,” said Enviro CEO Martin Hagbyhn.

After this recent success at Volvo, the company is now wishing to introduce its product to a couple of big rubber manufacturers – among which is also Trelleborg Industrial.

“We’re counting on even greater demand as more companies will follow Volvo car’s lead and contribute to a sustainable rubber industry,” said Hagbyhn.
