Continental builds basketball court from recycled Extreme E tyres

A new basketball court is being built in Hanover, Germany using paving stones made from recycled racing tyres from the Extreme E electric racing series, which Continental has been supporting as a founding partner since 2019.

The Extreme E tyres underwent a particularly complex manufacturing process to extract all chemical components from the tyres before transforming them into paving stones.

Now the tyres will be given a second life as the foundation of a high-level basketball court.

“We are very pleased to support the project with paving stones made from our recycled tyres here in Hanover. In this way, we are bringing the materials from the sustainable Extreme E electric racing series back into circulation and using them for a good cause,” said Enno Straten, head of strategy, analytics and marketing, Replacement Tires EMEA at Continental.
