OUR DNA IS RETREADING
OUR DNA IS RETREADING
As leaders in retreading, we have been actively contributing to reducing consumption and to the reuse of resources for 70 years
To prefer tyre retreading to its replacement means making an environmentally sustainable choice. A new tyre requires 83 litres of oil, 26 litres are enough to retread it. In addition, the retreading process preserves about 80% of the old tyre and saves up to 70% of energy.

At Marangoni Group, we are aware of the fact that, on our planet, linear consumption is reaching its limits and today we must give an answer through a business model that no longer takes its toll on the environment but, instead, values it. This is not about dealing only with an economic change, but also with a cultural change.

DID YOU KNOW THAT…
It takes 100 years for a tyre to degrade
Through retreading, it is possible to extend the life of tyres and therefore considerably reduce their rate of disposal
Thanks to retreading, the following are saved every year
million tons of tyres
are not entered into the environment
billion litres of oil
and other derivatives saved
billion of Euro in the
Estimates calculated by Marangoni SpA based on the data provided by the main tyre retreaders associations
Every year MARANGONI OTR retreads reduce by many thousand tons the use of raw materials such as rubber and steel.This CONTRIBUTES TO CO2 EMISSIONS REDUCTION. For example, four 23.5-25 retreaded tyres for a wheel loader, instead of 4 new tyres, mean approximately 2.500 kg less CO2 emissions in the environment.

marangoni and muse
The Marangoni Group and the MUSE Science Museum: a rather unexpected partnership. The occasion is the exhibition “Extinctions. Stories of catastrophes and other opportunities”, now held at the museum in Trento until 26 June. Why we decided to support this initiative? Because we are experiencing a new era, to say it in the terms used by MUSE: in fact, we are in the midst of a transition from a linear economy to a circular economy, to a more efficient use of the resources of our planet. This is the key transformation that is currently affecting production and consumption patterns worldwide. It is a historical phase in which terms such as “extinction”, in fact, or “catastrophes and opportunities” seem to be quite fitting. And they can be used equally well to take into account some of the transformations that, today, are affecting tyre production and, as a result, also our Group. Keep reading
The MUSE, Trento Science Museum, knows and estimates the tyre retreading features. This is why it has chosen Marangoni for its Sustainability Gallery.
The set-up offers the possibility to see the difference between a used tyre and a retreaded one and touch with your hands why a good quality product allows for a longer life cycle and – in fact – a considerable saving. The project aims at recalling the proven environmental benefits (retreading reduces 30% of the CO2 emissions and saves 70% of the tyre original materials) and economic (we are talking about savings of up to 35%), reassure the reliability, performance and safety issues of the approved retreaded products. Proof is the fact that, in Europe, 40-45% of the tyres for the transport of freight and passengers are retreaded.
