• Mobility Days: two-day conference of experts shows sustainable solutions for the tire and automotive industries;
• High-profile speakers from the business and scientific communities;
• Central and eastern Europe remains important growth market for LANXESS.

Today and tomorrow (November 22 and 23), experts from the German specialty chemicals company and high-profile representatives of the business and scientific communities will present innovations and the latest developments for sustainable state-of-the-art mobility.

Among others, LANXESS will showcase its latest generations of high-performance rubber and additives at the two-day conference. These help the tire industry to produce green tires, which are particularly fuel-efficient. The company will also demonstrate its know-how in the field of high-tech plastics. Thanks to their properties, these premium products are able to replace heavy metal parts in cars and lower consumption and CO2 emissions without compromising on safety.

“In the future, mobility around the world will need to become more sustainable and consume fewer resources than it does today. With its high-performance rubber and high-tech plastics, LANXESS is making an important contribution to such green mobility. In central and eastern Europe too, our technologies and products for the tire and automotive industries are important growth drivers. Last year alone we increased our sales in this region by 41 percent to EUR 310 million,” said Rainier van Roessel, member of the Board of Management of LANXESS AG. “And we continue to see significant growth potential in these countries, because compared with western Europe the proportion of car owners in the population is up to 80 percent lower.”

Automotive market and industry in the Czech Republic on the up
The automotive industry in the Czech Republic further augmented its growth in the first half of 2012. Driven by strong demand from abroad, the number of cars produced increased by 4.7 percent compared to the same period in the previous year to 662,500. According to current forecasts, the demand for cars on the Czech domestic market will also continue to grow. It is expected that the number of registered cars will rise to around 5.7 million by 2016 at the latest, compared to just 4.6 million in 2011. What is more, the average age of cars in the Czech Republic – 14 years – is comparatively high. It is therefore to be expected that a large number of new cars will be registered here in the coming years.

New EU label helps consumers in choosing tires
Politicians have also already made far-reaching decisions favoring sustainable mobility: since November 1, all new tires in Europe produced after June 1, 2012 have had to display the requisite EU tire label. The conspicuous markings, which consumers already know in a similar form from refrigerators and washing machines, rate the rolling resistance (i.e. consumption) and wet grip (safety) of tires. They also show the level of rolling noise. High-performance rubber from LANXESS already enables the tire industry to develop models that achieve good values in the new EU tire label.

LANXESS' fuel savings calculator shows how fast the additional costs of these green tires can be recovered. The software is available free of charge as an app in the App-Store and as a mobile and web version from app.green-mobility.com. The program provides motorists with quick and simple answers to three important questions. First, how many euros can you save with green tires? Second, how many months does it take for their purchase to pay off? And third, by how many kilograms can the CO2 emissions of a vehicle be reduced? The software was developed in conjunction with the Technical University of Munich. The TÜV Rheinland inspection agency examined and certified it.

High-profile experts at LANXESS Mobility Days in Prague
The program of LANXESS Mobility Days in Prague includes more than 20 specialist presentations. The speakers include Rainier van Roessel, member of the Board of Management of LANXESS AG, Přemysl Handzel, Director of Sourcing & Service at ŠKODA AUTO a.s., Eva Fürst, Manager of the Smart Mobility Project, E.ON Česká republika, s.r.o., and Martin Jahn, President of the Automotive Industry Association of the Czech Republic.
