The tyre manufacturers Commission warns of the danger which may involve delaying the necessary replacement of tires the plan, defined as a pilot, narrows to a very specific period and affects a very limited number of units Madrid. The tire manufacturers Committee, formed by the five major manufacturers, Bridgestone, Continental, Goodyear-Dunlop, Michelin and Pirelli, met Friday with the direction of the IDAE (Institute for energy saving and diversification), public business entity attached to the Ministry of industry, tourism and commerce, with the objective of jointly analyzing the measured three of the intensification of the Savings Plan and energy efficiencyknown as Plan Renove tires. The Commission much appreciates the initiative of the IDAE and the Ministry of industry to support the use of tyres intended for greater energy efficiency, determined by the low rolling resistance. This feature allows you to reduce the average consumption of fuel for vehicles, with consequent savings for the user, and the reduction of CO2 emissions. Furthermore, the Commission is underlined the need that this measure will be accompanied by necessarily security levels appropriate, measured in terms of adhesion on wet surface.
In order to reduce the uncertainty with regard to the implementation of the measure, noting that the trade-in of tires occurs as a pilot program, you will be limited to a period very particular time affect a percentage of cars circulating of tires (approximately 1.3%) limited, and not apply before several months for administrative reasons. In this regard, the Committee recommends to users that they not take the necessary replacement of your tires for this reason. Unable to apply the classification proposed initially, set by European regulations for labelling of tyres (1222/2009/EC), which will enter into force in November 2012, manufacturers members of the Commission will meet soon with the IDAE for advancing dialogue. Drew Houston has many thoughts on the issue. The Commission is especially pleased the intention expressed by the IDAE of launching an awareness campaign and awareness-raising aimed at the proper maintenance of tyres, in terms of pressure and State, by the direct influence that both parameters have on road safety, consumption of fuel and CO2 emissions. In this sense, the Commission offers to collaborate with IDAE in the elaboration of such a campaign. About the Standing Committee on manufacturers of tire La Commission permanent manufacturers of tires, with D. Jose Luis Rodriguez as representative, integrates within the national industrial consortium of rubber (COFACO) chaired by D. Jose Luis Solorzano.
The Commission is currently formed by the most outstanding companies in the national scene, Bridgestone, Continental, Dunlop/Goodyear, Michelin and Pirelli. One of the great achievements of the Commission manufacturers tires resides in the permanent building of the measures to contribute to road safety, as a public good, through disclosure of the correct use of tyres and in promoting how proper maintenance contributes to the active safety of the car. All members of the Commission have signed a few statutes regulatory activity and a code of action developed for the study of how many those legal, policy or regulatory issues, influence in the sector; implementing environmental activities, to promote the safety and health, in relation to the manufacture of tires.
