The Effects of Capmax on Tire Rolling Resistance
The Effects of Capmax on Tire Rolling Resistance

Global warming is a tremendous concern in modern times and the transportation sector was responsible for 14 percent of 2010 global greenhouse gas emissions. Fossil fuel use remains the main source of CO2, and therefore reducing fossil fuel consumption will decrease CO2 emissions.

 
Future Focus on Rolling Resistance
Future Focus on Rolling Resistance

There have been many studies carried out with the aim of finding a solution to reducing rolling resistance, but only a few have related to the main reason why rolling resistance is important. It is time to remind ourselves how the Rolling Resistance story began and how far it has gone from a CO, emissions perspective through medium- and long-term scenarios.
