China – On the occasion of the World Consumer Rights Day, the Chinese tv show “Super Power”, airing on Travel TV, has dedicated a reportage to Pirelli, describing the company as a leader of the auto&parts industry in terms of product’s quality and customers’ satisfaction.
The reportage remembers Pirelli’s journey in China and describes the features of the P Zero and Cinturato P7 tyres, two of the most interesting products the company has developed in the last years.

The municipality of Slatina, where Pirelli’s facility in Romania is located, will take part in the third edition of “Fii Orasul Reciclarii 2015”, the competition that awards the title of “city of recycling” in Romania, to be decided in June.
The municipality that collects the largest amount of waste will be rewarded with the construction of a playground made from recycled materials.
Our facility in Slatina, which has always placed great importance on environmental awareness, apart from supporting Slatina’s municipality in this competition, promotes, in partnership with local institutions, several educational projects for citizens on recycling.
Pirelli Slatina has also been participating in “Let’s do it Romania” for several years now, an initiative that involves many Pirelli employees volunteering to clean up the parks around Slatina.
Pirelli and Rosneft, in the context of the agreement signed last May for the production and supply of synthetic rubber in Nakhodka, today reached a new agreement which calls for, on the basis of a short list, the identification within three months of a new technological partner for the further development of activities in the rubber sector, including Styrene-Butadiene Rubber (SBR), in that region.
Under the terms of the MOU, Rosneft and future partner will analyze the ways in which the joint production of synthetic rubber could be launched in Nakhodka, while Pirelli will collaborate in the related Research and Development activities.
For Pirelli, the MOU also includes the possibility of entering into a long-term supply agreement to purchase the synthetic rubber jointly produced by Rosneft and the new technological partner being identified. SBR is of particular interest as it is an eco-friendly material used in the production of “green tyres”, which improves fuel efficiency and grip in both wet and dry conditions.
