It takes more than twenty gallons of oil to produce one new truck tire, while a retread only requires seven. STTC manufactures more than 200,000 retreads a year, reducing America's annual oil consumption by over 3 million gallons.
STTC recycles hundreds of thousands of pounds of foam-fill per year. Each pound of this recycled material replaces one pound of new polyurethane materials, significantly reducing America's oil usage.
Helping Create Recycled Products
STTC's retreading facilities recycle over 2.5 million pounds of tread material each year. This recycled product is then used to make truck bed liners, railroad crossing materials, playground and landscaping materials, hoses, and many other rubber products.
STTC has partnered with Hopkinton-based Solect Energy to install a 322 kW solar photovoltaic (PV) renewable energy system at their Millbury, MA Michelin Retread Plant. A total of 1,313 solar PV panels were installed on the roof of STTC’s 58,000-square-foot facility to help defray approximately 26% of the electricity expenses of their modern MRT retread plant.
Choosing to go solar was another way that we can give back, this time to the environment. Solar is nothing new to STTC as a 150KW array was installed atop STTC’s Millville NJ retread plant in 2006.
