Gulf Rubber and Autopro  Roll out 'Enviromat'

UAE’s Gulf Rubber and Autopro are launching a new recycled rubber product

The Enviromat is made from recycled rubber and will replace millions of paper mats used in car washes.

The Gulf Rubber Factory is a state-of-the-art industrial facility, utilising modern and leading recycling technologies to produce granular rubber of various sizes. This pilot project from AutoPro is in line with the UAE’s environmental goals to encourage a more sustainable and environmentally responsible nation, eliminating the use of paper from the car wash process.

Diab Abu Shaheen, General Manager, Gulf Rubber Factory, commented: “The aim of this partnership is to offer UAE customers class-leading, eco-friendly solutions. Together with AutoPro, we hope to realise our core vision, which is to be able to fully recycle rubber from used tyres, to produce finished rubber products through an economically sustainable and eco-friendly process. We aim to fully support the UAE Government in dealing with the environmental concerns associated with the disposal of used tyres.”

H.E Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO, ENOC, said: “In line with our commitment towards managing consumption of energy across all our operations, we pride ourselves for continuously identifying opportunities that reduce environmental waste and enhance energy efficiency and resource management.”
