Goodyear has unveiled a tire made of 90% sustainable materials that mostly come from agriculture.
Bob Woloszynek, Chief Engineer of Goodyear’s Global Material Development team, says they have utilized new carbon black technology that helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
“They are either produced from a sustainable feedstock or some sort of recycled materials,” he said. “That’s really going to help the overall footprint, compared to our traditional methods.”
He tells Brownfield soybean oil is used to help keep the tire’s rubber compound pliable in changing temperatures.
