MONTREAL – Clean energy. That is the theme at Michelin’s Movin’ On mobility conference, presented May 29 through June 1 in Montreal. Keeping with the theme, Michelin announced its plan to manufacture all tires with 80 percent sustainable materials and 100 percent of all tires recycled by 2048.

Michelin’s plan will include 50 percent biosourced materials and 30 percent recycled materials within 30 years. Currently, only 26 percent of tires are made with biosourced materials and 2 percent with recycled materials. The remaining 72 percent is made up of petroleum-based materials.

According to Michelin, the recovery rate for tires worldwide is at 70 percent and the recycling rate at 50 percent. Michelin plans to reach the 80 percent sustainable materials landmark by what it calls “high technology.”

30 years? Try not to set that bar too high ! By that time we will be all driving hover trucks that hover and everything.
