This research was to develop the enhancement of eco-efficiency performance of tread product processes by clean technology. Firstly, environmental and economic of eco-efficiency indictors was developed for evaluating performance of tread product processes during 2010-2012. Then, enhancing eco-Efficiency approach of tread condom product processes was developed by clean technology concept. The result of performance evaluation for tread product process by eco-efficiency showed that energy consumption and water use was highest and lowest values of eco-efficiency, respectively. From the result of eco-efficiency trend by snapshot graph analysis showed that electric consumption, water use and carbon emission of tread product process located in Fully Non-Eco-Efficiency, which was the change level of decreased economic will coincide with the increasing environmental impact. Besides, this finding was according to the result of the eco-efficiency value found that the water use was highest resource consumption of production process. Moreover, the clean technology concept was applied for developing approach of enhancing eco-efficiency of tread product process found that the training providing of water use and consumption for worker and the reuse of final leaching water was acknowledged by tread industry due to the immediate implementation and no cost.
