Goodyear Oxygene tire, introduced at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show, a visionary solution for cleaner, more convenient, safer and more sustainable urban mobility.
Oxygene tire, has a unique structure that features living moss growing within the sidewall. This open structure and the tire’s smart tread design absorb and circulate moisture and water from the road surface, allowing photosynthesis to occur and therefore releasing oxygen into the air.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) more than 80% of people who live in air pollution-measured urban areas are exposed to air quality levels that exceed WHO limits.
Chris Delaney, President of Goodyear Europe, Middle East and Africa, said:
“With more than two-thirds of the world population expected to live in cities by 2050, the demands on transport networks in urban environments will increase substantially. Smarter, greener infrastructure and transport will be crucial in addressing the most pressing challenges of urban mobility and development.”
