While several companies are still talking about creating “green” products, Goodyear introduces the concept version of a tire, called Oxygene. The concepttire debuted at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show. It features a unique open structure in which a heat-resistant moss is encouraged to grow inside the sidewall thanks to the smart tread design, which absorbs and circulates moisture it picks up from the road, all managed by an AI system. It also inhales carbon dioxide from the air to feed the moss.
The Oxygene concept features a lightweight, non-pneumatic construction using 3D-printed rubber powder sourced from recycled tires. Michelin has similarly 3D-printed tire concepts. Last year the company unveiled its airless Vision concept tire that recharges its treads via 3D printing technology to adjust to seasonal road conditions, and features a tread inspired by nature that is similarly made from sustainable materials. Like that one, the Oxygene is airless and puncture-free, with a shock-absorbing open tread structure that improves grip in wet conditions.Read more

That’s even as more than 90 percent of the steel that Asia’s biggest carmaker uses in the US is from that country. Trade groups representing automakers including General Motors Co and Toyota, plus parts suppliers like Robert Bosch GmbH, tried to warn the Trump administration of unintended consequences. That’s before the president said Thursday he plans to order tariffs of 25 percent on imported steel and 10 percent on aluminum. Read more
