It uses a “complex manufacturing process” to extract all chemical components from scrap tyres
Hanover, Germany – Continental AG is supplying rubber paving stones made from recycled tires for the construction of a new basketball court in Hanover.
The paving stones are made from recycled Extreme E CrossContact racing tires, which Continental has been supplying to the racing series as a founding partner since 2019.
In a November 25 statement, Conte said it implemented a “particularly complex manufacturing process” to extract all chemical components from waste tires before turning them into paving stones.
“Now the tires will be given a second life as the basis for a high-class basketball court,” she said.
The BasKIDball-supported project aims to overcome social barriers with the help of sport and create basketball courts throughout Germany where young people can train together, regardless of age, origin or school.
Extreme E is an off-road racing series with electric powered racing under extreme conditions.
