Project at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  • Goodyear’s forward-looking concept tyre made with BioIsoprene Technology was awarded the prestigious “Environmental Achievement of the Year Award” at the second Tyre Technology International Awards for Innovation and Excellence ceremony – the world’s biggest celebration of endeavour in the field of tyres.
  • The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. and Genencor, a division of Danisco A/S, have established a research collaboration to develop an integrated fermentation, recovery and purification system for producing BioIsoprene™ product from
    renewable raw materials.
  • The award winning concept tyre with BioIsoprene represents a breakthrough alternative to a petrochemically produced
    ingredient in the manufacture of synthetic rubber with renewable biomass.
  • The tyres made with BioIsoprene, which are
    the result of a collaboration between Genencor, a division of Danisco, and Goodyear, reconfirms Goodyear’s longstanding industry leadership in developing innovative tyre technologies.
  • Amyris expects to to begin commercialization of the bio-isoprene to other customers in 2015, while Michelin is reportedly committing off-take volumes on a ten years basis.
  • Using sugars from renewable sources such as sugar cane, corn or switchgrass, the scientists have been able to create a “green” isoprene, trademarked as BioIsoprene.
  • Danisco said it planned to invest $11 million in developing biobased isoprene in 2011.
  • Making synthetic rubber from renewable biomass
  • Dispatches from the Bio-based economy
