Michelin Unveils Racing Tyre With 46 Percent sustainable Material

Michelin announced that it will  unveil a racing tire containing 46% sustainable materials at the 2021 Movin’On Summit. It will be fitted to the GreenGT Mission H24 hydrogen-powered prototype developed for endurance racing.

Michelin said, with its totally new innovation engineered for motorsports, it has found what many observers thought was impossible: a way to make a tire with high sustainable content that still delivers superior on-track performance.

This very high percentage was achieved by increasing the tire’s natural rubber content and using recycled carbon black recovered from end-of-life tires. Other bio-sourced or recycled sustainable materials used in the tire include such everyday items as orange and lemon rind sunflower oil, pine resin and recycled steel from aluminum cans,  said the tyremaker.

This commitment will reach an initial milestone in 2030, with a Group-wide target of having 40% sustainable materials in its tires.

Alongside its commitment to integrating sustainable materials into its tires, Michelin also uses eco-design processes to attenuate its tires’ environmental impact at every stage in their lifecycle, from raw materials sourcing and production to road use and recycling.

“We share a core value with Movin’On and its partners, namely the deep belief that mobility, and movement in the broadest sense of the term, are inherent to life and a source of progress,” says Michelin Managing Chairman Florent Menegaux.

“The two innovative solutions we are presenting at this year’s global sustainable mobility summit offer tangible, real-world proof of our determination to make mobility increasingly sustainable.”
