Sustainable Goodyear Eagle GO for Citroën Oli

Goodyear has used several sustainable materials to develop a tire for fitment to Citroën’s new Oli concept car.

The Eagle GO’s tread features a compound made of nearly all sustainable or recycled materials. These include sunflower oils and pine resins instead of petroleum-derived oils, and natural rubber from the Hevea brasiliensis tree as a replacement for petroleum-based rubber. Rice husk ash silica also features to reduce the amount of waste from the rice processing industry that reaches landfill.

To increase its environmentally friendly credentials, Goodyear has developed the concept tire to be renewed twice over its service life for an extended lifespan, which could be up to 500,000km.
