BKT is at the forefront of sustainable tyre manufacturing
Like other tyre manufacturers, BKT has been working on substitute raw material solutions, mainly guayule and dandelion. BKT has opted for Dandelion because of its higher latex content. This plant grows annually even in moderate climates. Its roots contain about 15 per cent of latex, which can be used as raw material for making rubber.
