Bridgestone debut a recyclable, none pneumatic, petrochemical free tires


Recyclable, Airless, Petrochemical free tyres
Major Japanese tyre manufacturers have released prototypes of next-generation products with more environment friendly features just in time for this year's Tokyo Motor Show - a tyre that does not need air to inflate and another made only of non-petroleum materials.
Bridgestone Corp.'s new “air-free" tire uses a special kind of mesh like resin on the sides of the tire to support a vehicle's weight. According to the company, all materials used in the tyre are recyclable.

At the motor show, which runs through Sunday, Bridgestone is exhibiting an electric single-seat scooter using a prototype of the new tyre.

"The tyres can absorb enough shocks to allow you to enjoy a comfortable ride," an official said.

On the other hand, Sumitomo Rubber Industries, Ltd. has released a prototype of a new tyre that does not use petroleum or any other kinds of fossil fuels by replacing them with plant-derived additives.

The company will study the durability of the tyre and develop techniques for mass production before its planned sale starting in 2013, says Sumitomo.

Meanwhile, fuel-saving tires currently available on the market have also been improved. Toyo Tire & Rubber, Ltd. announced Thursday that it would start selling a new tyre in February that can meet the highest grade for fuel savings while simultaneously improving brake performance on wet road surfaces.

The Yokohama Rubber Co. has also been selling a snow tyre featuring superior brake performance on frozen road surfaces.
