Revolutionary bio-materials, such as rice husk ash, have exciting potential to help the tire industry become more sustainable. In addition to being renewable, these materials have the potential to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions,
In some countries, the rice husks are burnt, which of course creates millions of tons of ash and waste that would go to landfills.
The same ash will soon be used as a material in Goodyear tires and make them extremely fuel efficient at the same time!
