Recycled Rubber Coalition reports that while electric vehicles (EVs) can help reduce carbon emissions, there is an unexpected environmental issue emerging from the rapid adoption of EVs.

While they offer many benefits, EVs are also significantly heavier than equivalent gas-powered vehicles due to the weight of their batteries. Combined with increased acceleration rates, these effects can cause EVs to use tires up to 30% faster.

Read more about this unexpected environmental problem and common-sense solutions in the latest white paper by Recycled Rubber Coalition:

Recycled Rubber Coalition is committed to addressing the challenges posed by this surge and proposes pragmatic solutions for a sustainable future. The report emphasizes the need for government policies supporting recycled rubber markets and showcases innovative ways to reuse end-of-life tires.
