Environmental Impact

Jun 22, 2017

When TRC and its companies think about tire repair and sustainability, we think big. But when we added up the annual number of tires repaired around the globe, even we were surprised at the impact.


As a world leader in tire repair, we added up every individual tire repair unit sold last year and used some external data sources such as the British Petroleum Statistical review of world energy and the United States Environmental Protection Agency data to put the volume in context. This produced some significant findings.

If each TRC tire repair unit repaired a tire and therefore prevented the need for a replacement tire to be produced:

  • More oil would be saved than is consumed globally for 6 hours
  • If placed tread to tread, the repaired tires would circle the earth’s equator twice

This makes us proud to contribute to a more sustainable world. Helping our customers extend the usable life of their assets is what TRC is all about.
