Continental unveils truck tires made from dandelion rubber

A technical revolution, now also available for commercial vehicles: Continental is unveiling tires for trucks and buses made from natural rubber derived from dandelion roots. The first Conti EcoPlus HD3 made from this innovative and sustainable dandelion rubber were manufactured in summer 2016.

The tests on these truck tires are extremely promising, demonstrating that the alternative to traditionally sourced natural rubber is ideal for the commercial vehicle sector and fulfills the strictest requirements in the challenging field of freight haulage.
