Versalis and Bridgestone JV in developing innovative elastomers for tyres

Versalis, Eni’s chemical company, a leader in the production and marketing of elastomers, and Bridgestone EMIA, a leader in advanced mobility solutions, have signed a joint development agreement for the research, production and supply of synthetic rubber with advanced properties.

The Research and Development divisions of the two organizations will collaborate, using an Open Innovation model, to develop technologies and new elastomer grades, including Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR), for the production of high-performance tyres. Versalis will leverage the expertise of its Research Center at Ravenna and Ferrara, while Bridgestone will use its Technical Center Europe near Rome.
