Dayco steps up to environmental challenge
Share:

Leading engine products and drive systems supplier, Dayco, is making further strides as part of its mission to reduce the environmental impact of the group.  


The company has recently successfully passed the preliminary phase of the Automotive Innovation Agreements DD 10/10/2022  including the submission of a 36 month project aimed at reducing the percentage of elastomers from the traditional supply chain during the manufacturing process by inserting a fraction of secondary raw materials, together with the virgin raw materials, in the finished product’s final composition. 

The second objective involves the recovery from vehicle service facilities of the belts replaced during routine schedule service. These rubber components, after fulfilling required function and durability specification, can have a second life, for example recycled in a different class of products, which will naturally reduce the impact on the environment.

Dayco’s formidable R&D team, in conjunction with other relevant departments at its Chieti plant, will work together allowing the company to fully achieve these objectives.
