Goodyear developing tire using soybean oil
The United Soybean Board (USB) explained partnering with Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. in the development of a tire that uses soybean oil to replace part of the petroleum oil that has been the standard for all modern tire production.
The partnership with Goodyear was recently announced as field tests for the new tire, featuring U.S. soy oil, showed the potential to offer consumers increased tread life and a greener alternative to those manufactured solely with petrochemicals.
“The soy checkoff welcomes the opportunity to partner with Goodyear in bringing this tire to the market,” said Russ Carpenter, a soybean farmer from Trumansburg, N.Y., and chair of the USB New Uses program.
