    1. Michelin to pursue sustainable motorsport despite Formula E exit

      Michelin motorsport director Matthieu Bonardel has given his reaction to the announcement of a changing of the guard in the world’s premier battery-powered single-seater racing series. Despite Hankook’s move to replace Michelin as Formula E tyre supplier after the 2021/2022 season, the French manufacturer continues to believe that “sporting competition and sustainable mobility are inextricably linked.” Michelin was the tyre inaugural supplier to Formula E, which began in 2014/15, and has actively shaped the series as exclusive tyre partner ever since.

    2. Recycled rubber infill material has a role to play in a Circular Economy

      The European new Green Deal is in line with a vision for a Circular Economy that the tyre industry has been pioneering for decades. Europe, the largest net importer of natural resources in the world, loses 95% of the material value during the first use cycle. By using the resources we already have, we can decouple the European economy from the need of new resources. The recycling of tyres is recognized for its success with over 95% collection rate and a 62% material recovery rate.

    10. Prototype device gathers microplastics from car tires

      While we may think of car exhaust as being a major source of air pollution, automobile tires also hugely contribute to microplastics pollution. A team of British arts and sciences students, known as The Tyre Collective, decided to do something about the latter. Led by Prof. Robert Shorten of Imperial College London (and the Royal College of Art), they developed a prototype device that sits adjacent to a car's tire, close to where it touches the road.

      ETRMA response to EmissionsAnalytics’ driving test

      The European Tyre and Rubber Manufacturers’ Association (ETRMA) is committed to analyse all aspects related to unintentionally released tyre and road wear particles (TRWP) and their impact on the environment. Our members are fully engaged in building scientific knowledge on the generation and transportation of these particles and are working towards finding practical solutions for reducing their impact. It is important to remember that TRWP are an approximately 50:50 mixture of tyre tread and road surface materials and the crucial role tyres play for sustainable mobility in terms of road safety and efficiency.

    17. Tire Industry Moves to Improve Sustainability, Reduce Waste (Part One)

      End-of-life tires pose multiple environmental problems, with some, but limited, options to manage them and turn them into other products. This three-part series looks at issues around producing sustainable tires and reducing tire waste, as well as innovations to address those issues. Read part two here, and read part three here.

      In part one below, we highlight developments such as Goodyear’s work to replace petroleum-derived oil with soybean oil in its product and a new process whereby one company has used spent tires to create asphalt roads—to the tune of 7,000 miles of road across multiple states.
