This week at Tire Tech Expo in Cologne

The Tire Tech Expo takes place beginning today in Cologne, and as always this great conference is packed with papers as well as a huge trade show. Notch Consulting is presenting a paper on Tuesday entitled “Prospects for Extended Mobility Systems: Run-flats, Tire Repair Kits, and Self-Sealing Tires.” The paper is based on a new market research report coming out in March 2014 that examines the various systems that are replacing the full-size spare tires in new passenger cars.

There are many great papers and events at the show, but I wanted to draw your attention to one event in particular: David Shaw from Tire Industry Research is holding a launch event for a new report that came out this month entitled “Sustainability in the Tire Industry 2014.” The event will be held on Wednesday, February 12, in Conference room 1 (on level 2). There is also a seminar on this topic on Wednesday beginning at 9:00.

Here is the brochure: Tire Sustainability-Brochure2.
