Presentation

New developments in Asahi Kasei's SSBR for a sustainable future

With the emergence of new mobility technologies and as the attention toward environmental sustainability is increasing, the tire industry’s need for sustainable solutions is imperative. Asahi Kasei’s first response toward sustainability is the development of its 6th-generation SSBR technology, offering low rolling resistance and wear. A tire with low wear translates as low microplastic emission, which is the need of the hour. Asahi is concentrating on sustainable raw material procurement for long-term sustainable solutions, with sustainable naphtha being one such example. Asahi has also committed to supplying ISCC-certified products using the mass balance approach.
