Continental earns praise for EcoRubber garden hose

Continental A.G. has earned high marks from leading polymer and rubber experts for its EcoRubber garden hose that uses sugar cane ethylene rather than petroleum-based, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 85 percent.

“Continental is consistently evaluating renewable oils and reclaimed or recycled materials that will reduce our reliance on petroleum-based products while also reducing emissions and landfill of end-of-life rubber products. There were few EPDM rubber grades available with bio-renewable content, so we saw an opportunity….[I]t was our goal to increase the overall amount of renewable material in garden hose construction while maintaining hose performance.” Andreas Gerstenberger, Executive Vice President at Continental and head of the Industrial Fluid Solutions business unit
