With a goal to produce a tire from completely sustainable sources, which in turn will help eliminate the use of petroleum and cut down on emissions during production, Goodyear says it has produced a demonstration tire that is made up of 70% of sustainable materials.
Goodyear set the goal to produce a tire using all sustainable materials by 2030 and production of the prototype tire significantly cut the use of petroleum-based materials. The tire includes 13 ingredients across nine tire components, including soybean oil, rice husk ash and polyester developed from plastic waste.
