Innovation for closed-loop rubber recycling - LIFE GREEN VULCAN project

Within the LIFE Green Vulcan project, the de-vulcanization technology developed by Rubber Conversion has been tested in demanding applications like PCR-treads (10% de-vulc) and spring pads (20% wt/wt of de-vulc). Performance tests carried out on both products showed values compliant with product specifications despite the high content of de-vulcanized rubber. The partners of this project are Bridgestone, FIAT Research Center, Stellantis, University of Trento and Innovando.
