From Recycled Plastic to Premium Tyres by Continental

Continental has recently become the first tyre manufacturer to launch the extensive production of recycled polyester yarn from PET plastic bottles. This will now be implemented as a high-performance material to be used within selected sizes of Continental’s PremiumContact 6, EcoContact 6 Summer Tyre and AllSeasonContact ranges.

This ground-breaking development, named ContiRe.Tex, completely replaces conventional polyester in tyre carcass and further enhances the company’s strict policy of only using high-performance materials in the production of the company’s premium tyre ranges.

These ‚Äėspecial‚Äô ContiRe.Tex tyre patterns are being exclusively manufactured at Continental‚Äôs plant in Lousado, Portugal, with a special logo of ‚ÄėContains Recycled Material‚Äô on the sidewall.
