Goodyear Touts Sustainability of New Demo Tire
Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. says it has developed a tire that is 70% composed on sustainable materials. The product "has been produced as a demonstration tire," according to Goodyear officials.
It contains 13 "featured ingredients across nine different tire components."
These include three different carbon blacks produced from methane, carbon dioxide and plant-based oil; soybean oil; "a unique variety of silica produced from rice husk ash;" and others.
