PILOT PROJECT: SCHWALBE DEVELOPS RECYCLING SYSTEM FOR USED BICYCLE TIRES
Schwalbe has been a leader in sustainability and recycling for many years. Therefore, all bicycle tubes they produce are 100 per cent recyclable. In 2015, a recovery system was initiated where used tubes are collected from bicycle dealers for recycling. The recycled material is reused during the production of new tubes without any loss of quality. For a closed-loop product life cycle and concerted recycling process design, Schwalbe won the German Sustainability Award 2021 in the category ‘Pioneers’. The pilot project ties in with these efforts by developing a sustainable recycling system that is also suitable for used bicycle tires.
