Goodyear attends the Copenhagen summit

The best showcase for presenting a new « ecological » tyre concept was at the United Nations climate summit. Until the 21st December, the American manufacturer was exhibiting a revolutionary tyre with Biolsoprene in the departure hall of Copenhagen’s international airport.

Made from renewable raw materials, it offers an organic alternative to isoprene, a chemical substance obtained from hydrocarbons and used to make synthetic rubber. The use of renewable raw materials in the tyre manufacturing process reduces this industry’s impact on the environment, which at the same time becomes less dependent on oil-based derivatives.
