Carbon calculator tool aims to measure retread benefits

Published:  23 October, 2017

Independent tyre retreader Vacu-Lug Traction Tyres has introduced a carbon counting tool which, they claim enables their fleet customers to measure the environmental benefits of using Vacu-Lug retread tyres in comparison to all-new tyres. 

Complementing the company’s tyre fleet management system (VMS), the Carbon Calculator is installed on Vacu-Lug’s website and can be used to generate an instant carbon savings report.

Operators simply need to access the Calculator via Vacu-Lug’s homepage, select the tyre size and pattern and add the quantity of tyres used annually.

Fleet sales director Dave Alsop said: ‘As the UK’s largest independent manufacturer of retread tyres, we have a responsibility to the environment to keep carbon output and energy consumption as low as possible.

‘Our new Carbon Calculator fits with our environmental policy and enables our customers to easily monitor and assess the carbon output of the Vacu-Lug retread tyres used in their fleet.’

Vacu-Lug expect the carbon-counting tool to be widely used and to play a key part in helping commercial fleet operators routinely monitor, assess and reduce carbon emissions.
