Bio-based Isoprene

  • 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.
  • 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.
