Nanotechnology Tire Reinforcement Materials

Issue

Conventional Tech

Carbon Black

Tires are strengthened with carbon black, a tire reinforcement material.

Tires turn black instead of getting stronger.

0 million Ton

Annual CO2 emissions from carbon black production

0 % of Carbon Black

is used in tires.

Tire dust as a new issue

The environmental impact of Tire and Road Wear Particles (TRWP) is becoming an emerging issue.

0 %

Microplastics

are also reported to originate from tire dust.

0 years later

Tire dust regulations

will begin to be enforced in the EU in an advance stage.

Solution

Bio Tire Reinforcements

Our mission is to bring innovation to black petroleum-based tires.

Intentional Impact

If completely replaced, CO2 and microplastic emissions could be reduced by 80% from conventional one.

CO2 emission

Can be reduced by 80%

Microplastic emission

Can be reduced by 80%

Milestone

Mass production is scheduled to begin in 2025.

Project was launched

September, 2021

Successfully developed original technology

It was adopted as a Japanese national project and succeeded in dispersing nano-scale materials in rubber, which was considered difficult to do.

December, 2022

Good driving test results

We tested the tires on the road with excellent results, with wear resistance and power consumption improving by about 20%.

September, 2023

Public road test starts

The tires will be installed on local government rental bicycles and begin running.

April, 2024

Mass production starts

Full-scale mass production by the top tire manufacturers is scheduled to begin.

January, 2025

Creation of new markets

We will provide tire reinforcements for progressively larger mobility applications, creating a new $40 billion market by 2035.

Our innovation has just begun

The world's most advanced R&D themes are progressing simultaneously.
