Bridgestone to Create 100-Per Cent Eco Tire
By 2050 Bridgestone plans to work out a totally eco-friendly tire made from natural materials, says Shoshi Arakawa, Head of the Company, on the World Rubber Summit that took place on May 22-24 in Singapore.
Now Bridgestone is doing a research into the methods of natural rubber deriving from guayule and daffodils as well as studies the process of making synthetic rubber from biomass, carbon and other substances. They also try to make use of the new cellulose fibers to replace polyester and nylon, both being created from oil.
The plan fits in Bridgestone strategy of environmental protection that includes the reduction of CO2 emissions. It would be possible provided that you optimize your vehicle’s fuel consumption, which can be achieved by using a low rolling resistant tire. Moreover, eco-friendly technologies affect the choice of materials for the tire as well as its production process.
Bridgestone claims to create butadiene from bio ethanol that to use it for synthetic rubber as well as to work out carbon on the base of intermediate substances from raw biomass, but the details are kept in secret for now. The company promises to inform the community about the steps of the project implementation.
