Can rubber help against the greenhouse effect?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademic


Car traffic has a significant share in worldwide greenhouse gas emissions. ­Despite many improvements in the past there is still a big potential for further reductions of the CO2 emissions. Many parts of a car can be replaced by thermoplastics or elastomers in order to reduce weight. In addition, all tyre producers are working on ­solutions to decrease the CO2 emissions, e. g. by reducing the rolling resistance. One important aspect in both areas – at least in the long term – will be the use of bio-based products.
