Goodyear tyres are using soybeans to make longer lasting tyres

Goodyear tyres are using soybeans to make longer lasting tyres | tyre news | Scoop.it

One of my favourite tyre makers Goodyear tyres

 

Are looking for many didderent resources to help them less reliant on petrol oil based products. One of the products that have come out as one of the best, is "Soybean oil", this type of oil is also helping Goodyear to obtain better rolling resistance in their tyres and with that comes better mileage.

"Goodyear researchers have found that using soybean oil in the manufacturing process can extend the tread life of tyres and significantly reduce the amount of petroleum required, “up to seven million gallons each year” for the company as a whole. Adding soy to rubber compounds in tire production, the company says, has proven to improve the mixing process, and creates a better rubber compound. The soy helps the rubber blend easier with the silica, a basic component of ordinary beach sand and an integral tire ingredient"…http://ev-olution.org/?p=37639

 

"Goodyear Tire and Rubber is working on a new technology that can help make its tires less expensive to produce and last longer and it involves something that the U.S. has plenty of – soybeans. Goodyear researchers have ...http://eideard.com/2012/08/12/goodyear-turning-to-soybeans-to-make-longer-lasting-tires/

Plastic from tyres 'major source' of ocean pollution

Plastic from tyres 'major source' of ocean pollution | tyre news | Scoop.it
Particles of debris from car tyres are ending up in the ocean as "plastic soup", conservationists warn.Microplastics from tyres and textiles are a bigger source of marine pollution than the breakdown of larger plastic waste in some areas, says the IUCN.Up to 30 per cent of plastic released into the oceans each year comes from primary microplastics, not the disintegration of larger pieces, a report found.Debris from tyre abrasion and synthetic fabrics are the main sources, they say.
eric roberts's insight:

This information is news to me??? In fact I was led to believe that waste tyres were to be used to make new barrier reefs.It would be interesting to see the science behind this??

Tomato and egg waste may end up in your tires

Tomato and egg waste may end up in your tires | tyre news | Scoop.it
​An automobile tire is composed of about 30 percent carbon black, which adds durability to the rubber. Carbon black is petroleum-based, however, meaning that it isn't entirely eco-friendly. That's why scientists have been experimenting with an alternative – namely egg shells and tomato skins.
eric roberts's insight:

This looks like it could be on a winner. Tyre manufacturers are looking at ways.Hence, to make tyres more environmentally friendly. I must admit that the colour makes it look a piece of leather?
