As an industry leader in tyre flatproofing solutions for the past 40 years, Accella Tyre Fill Systems has made providing environmentally supportive products a long-term strategic business priority. As a zero waste, zero emission manufacturer, Accella Tyre Fill Systems has proved that innovation and sustainability can coexist and become a competitive advantage.
During the past few years, Accella Tyre Fill Systems has introduced next generation technology that significantly reduces the usage of oil, petrochemicals, toxic metals, and other environmentally harmful compounds. Accella Tyre Fill Systems’ sustainability initiatives have resulted in safer manufacturing environments for our employees and our customers. Also, unlike solid tyres, tyre fill material is recyclable.
We have created technologies that not only promote sustainability but also offer cost-effective benefits for our customers. Tyre fill maximizes tyre life and allows end-users to increase productivity. Also, a filled tyre can be retreaded up to four times without sacrificing performance. Consequently, these benefits of tyre fill eliminate tens of millions of tyres from reaching landfills.
Accella Tyre Fill Systems promotes recycling by using recycled used tyres in our patented Green Machine Recycler Machine and Rubber Crumb System technologies. Using rubber crumb enables our customers and end-users to become more efficient and responsive to the increasing demand for greener products by their customers. Additionally, 100% of TyrFil used in foam-filled tyre assemblies can be reclaimed and reused.
We are committed to continuously developing new tyre fill products and systems that reduce our customer’s carbon footprint. The TyrFil EcoFil product line is just one example. This new tyre fill was specifically developed for the aerial work platform (AWP) applications. As the name applies, this product is a water-based material that increases the sustainable material content to 70 percent. Also, since a water-based material reduces the dependence on oil and its accompanying volatile pricing, saving you money and the environment at the same time.
However, we at Accella Tyre Fill Systems realize that there is only so much we can accomplish on our own and this is why we have strategically combined our success with our customer’s by partnering with American Forests. This partnership led to us establishing our “One Tote, One Tree” program. This program plants a new tree for every tote of product purchased by our customers. To date, we have planted more than 90,000 trees and counting. Please visit onetoteonetree.org for additional information.
