SMX shares results of industrial marking process for natural rubber used in vehicle and truck tires

SMX Leads the Way in Tracing Natural Rubber from Tree to Tyre

SMX, a pioneering company in the digitalization of physical assets for the circular economy, has recently announced a landmark achievement in tracking the supply chain of natural rubber.

The firm successfully traced 21 tons of natural rubber, originating from Latin America, throughout its entire journey from the initial tapping of the tree to the final production of tyres for vehicles such as cars, trucks, and lorries. This innovative programme entailed the initial marking of the rubber at the source - the trees in Latin America.

The process saw farmers applying the unique SMX marker to the harvested rubber, ensuring its traceability through to the processing and manufacturing stages within the region. A total of 42 tons of latex were processed into 21 tons of marked natural rubber, which was then transformed into bales and shipped to various tyre manufacturing facilities.

This initiative underscores SMX's commitment to enhancing transparency and sustainability within the global rubber supply chain, paving the way for a more accountable and eco-friendly circular economy.
