Green XLR from GRI Gains Credibility
GRI’s recently launched GREEN XLR Earth Series tyres have achieved noteworthy performance during the last 6 months of field tests in Germany. Designed to revolutionise the industry, these tyres incorporate an impressive 78.6% sustainable materials, including pure natural rubber sustainably sourced from Sri Lankan rubber farmers. The Earth Series from GRI significantly reduces the carbon footprint while delivering unparalleled performance and durability.
The GREEN XLR Earth Series tyres represent a significant leap forward in GRI’s commitment to environmental stewardship by optimising the use of recycled carbon black, reclaimed rubber, highly dispersible silica, soybean oil and bio-sourced cellulose fibres. The use of bio-sourced soybean oil, combined with next-generation HD Silica, not only improves fuel economy but also extends tire life. Through these innovative technological advancements and the use of environmentally friendly raw materials as well as processes, the Earth Series tyres offer a multitude of benefits, including low abrasion loss, enhanced durability, reduced soil compaction, and decreased rolling resistance for efficient and improved fuel consumption.
The Earth Series tyres have undergone extensive testing in various regions, receiving excellent feedback from farmers and industry experts. In Germany, Spain, and the UK, the tyres have proven their mettle, delivering exceptional performance in diverse conditions.
