Michelin’s Movin’On Summit: Vision for sustainable tires… and wind-powered cargo ships

Michelin is highlighting two sustainable innovations during the annual Movin’On Summit, unveiling the prototype for a sustainable tire and even a new generation of sails for merchant ships.

The prototype racing tire contains 46% sustainable materials and is being fitted to the GreenGT Mission H24 hydrogen-powered car for endurance racing.

The announcement comes alongside a look at the Wing Sail Mobility (WISAMO) project that includes an automated, telescopic, inflatable wing sail system that can be fitted to merchant ships and pleasure craft.
