German Continental presented the concept of the environmentally sustainable Conti GreeenConcept tire at the Munich Motor Show. This is not just about the tire, but about the idea of minimizing resource consumption in the entire chain of its production.
This includes the selection and procurement of raw materials, and these are recycled or renewable sources. A total of 35% of the Conti concept uses renewable materials. These include biomaterials such as natural dandelion rubber, rice husk ash silicate and vegetable oils and resins. All this contributes to less use of oil-derived materials.
Conti GreenConcepr also uses 17% recycled materials, including steel, carbon powder and polyester from recycled plastic bottles, which is used as a rubber base and can be reused.
The tread of the tire is 100% natural tarksagam rubber and can be changed. The picture shows the transition from the green color of the base of the tire, which gives it a shape in the tread. Undamaged bases can be used multiple times.
The technology is called ContiRe.Tex and will be gradually introduced from next year.
