Join the aramid circularity conversation at the Tire Technology Expo 2023 – visit us at Booth C426
Connect with Teijin Aramid’s team at Tire Technology 2023, Europe’s number-one tire manufacturing technology exhibition and conference. The event takes place from 21-23 March at the Deutsche Messe in Hannover, Germany.
Teijin Aramid strives to achieve a fully circular aramid value chain in tire construction, co-creating a more sustainable future with our industry partners.
Expo participants will meet our team and discover the strides we’re making in material retrieval from end-of-life tires. Teijin Aramid has been driving progress in tire manufacturing over the last few decades with Twaron®, one of our high-performance aramid solutions. The product’s unique strength and heat-resistant properties make it ideal for manufacturing tires. However, extracting aramid from end-of-life tires to produce new yarn, pulp, and production-ready polymers and monomers has remained a challenge.
Noor Hossain, Manager of Sustainable Business Development at Teijin Aramid, will take expo participants through the process of aramid extraction used at the company’s Research and Innovation Center (RIC) in the Netherlands.
Participants will also learn more about Teijin Aramid’s circular technology toolbox and how physical, chemical and mechanical recycling is currently used to drive aramid circularity. Challenges will be discussed, such as retrieving textile waste, cleaning used material, and creating new and smaller material streams from lower-volume tires. One of our goals will be to partner with more industry players in finding ways to get aramid back from tire cord companies and other end-of-life sources.
