GRI, a tyre manufacturer based in Sri Lanka, has introduced its new Green XLR Earth Series of radial agricultural tyres. It is billed as the world's first sustainable tyre series for the agricultural sector. The tyre manufacturer's latest product, made with 37.5% sustainable materials, is intended to protect the environment while providing high performance and productivity for agricultural vehicles.

The Green XLR Earth Series contains a high percentage of recycled carbon black and renewable and sustainable soybean oil, which ensures the natural rubber within the tyre retains more of its original qualities for enhanced performance. Other materials, such as next-generation HD silica, aid in tyre performance.

GRI also used reclaimed rubber sourced from end-of-life tyres via a green recycling process to improve the product line's sustainability and reduce its carbon footprint.

The Green XLR Earth Series will help to preserve our planet for future generations by reaching new heights in order to positively impact climate change. It will also allow farmers to do what they do best: plant, harvest, and provide food while caring for the environment."
