Overview

Established in January 2006, the goal of the Tire Industry Project (TIP), working under the umbrella of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), is to identify and address the potential health and environmental impacts of materials associated with tire making and use. This project is chaired by the three largest tire manufacturers – Bridgestone (Japan), Goodyear (US) and Michelin (France) – and includes a total of eleven companies representing approximately 70% of the world's tire manufacturing capacity.

TRWP

Tire & Road Wear Particles (TRWP)

The current major focus of the TIP research effort is developing a better understanding of the fate and possible effects of particles generated during normal tire use and wear.  These particles are not simply rubber pieces from the tire, but rather an agglomeration of material from the tire along with material from the road.

End-of-Life Tires

End-of-Life Tires (ELTs)

Discussion on the environmental impact of tires frequently focuses on the management of tires that have reached the end of their useful life (End-of-Life Tires, or ELTs).

Nanomaterials

Nanomaterials

The development of new nanomaterials in tires could result in significant benefits for customers, the environment and societies more generally. Potential fields of improvement include increased car and truck fuel efficiency and durability, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions and tire weight.
