Continental Conti GreenConcept Tire
At the IAA Mobility Summit in Munich, Continental introduced its Conti GreenConcept Tire. The eco-friendly tire is constructed from 50% sustainable raw materials, with an additional 35% from bio-materials, including natural rubber from dandelions, silicate from the ash of rice husks, and vegetable oils and resins. This process not only results in a greener product but also produces a lighter design. The Conti GreenConcept weighs 40% less than standard tires. Although, the highlight is the renewable tread. Made from 100% Taraxagum natural rubber, the tread compound can be replaced several times, conserving both materials and money.
