Our member LanzaTech and global leader in tires Bridgestone Americas have recently announced an exclusive partnership to address end-of-life tire waste.
The two companies will co-develop the first dedicated end-of-life tire recycling process leveraging LanzaTech’s proprietary Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU) technology, creating a pathway toward tire material circularity and the decarbonisation of the tire production of the future.
The two companies will work to convert end-of-life tires into new materials, including exploring processes to create sustainable synthetic rubber that does not rely on petrochemicals.
Bridgestone has committed to carbon neutrality and the manufacture of tires from 100% renewable materials by 2050.
