Michelin to recycle 100 per cent tyres by 2048

Michelin to recycle 100 per cent tyres by 2048

- Tyres to be manufactured using 80 per cent sustainable materials
- 100 per cent of all the tyres to be recycled by 2048
- To use advanced materials and 3D printing technologies

Michelin has revealed its ambitious plans for 2048, when all of its tyres will be manufactured using 80 per cent sustainable materials and 100 per cent of all the tyres will be recycled. As of now, globally, the recovery rate for tyres is 70 per cent and the recycling rate is just 50 per cent. Moreover, currently Michelin tyres are made using only 28 per cent of sustainable materials of which 26 per cent are bio-sourced materials like natural rubber, sunflower oil, limonene etc., and two per cent are recycled materials such as steel or powdered tires.

Last year, the company had revealed the innovative VISION concept. The company uses advanced materials and 3D printing technologies that are used for manufacturing and renewing the tread of this mobility solution. The airless tyre is made from bio-sourced and recycled products. Moreover, it gets a connected eco-system within the tyre, which provides services and advice to the driver. The tyre also claims to reduce the environmental footprints of car journeys.

Michelin is also reportedly developing innovative solutions to integrate more and more recycled and renewable materials in its tyres, while continuing to improve performance, which includes 30 per cent of recycled materials by 2048. This is also demonstrated by the recent acquisition of Lehigh, a specialist in high technology micro powders which are derived from recycled tires.
