Goodyear Floats Idea For Moss-Lined Tire That Absorbs Carbon Dioxide

By Aimee Lutkin

Goodyear tires is trying to break into the green game with an innovative idea for a tire that would clean the air as it rolled down the highway. It is, as of now, just an idea, but it's definitely outside the box. 

The Goodyear Oxygene is a tire lined with moss. Real, live, growing moss. It was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, USA Today reports, as part of a demo on futuristic technologies from various motor companies. Chris Delaney, president of Goodyear's Europe, Middle East and Africa markets, gave a statement patting Goodyear on the back for thinking far outside the circle.

"Like the concept designs Goodyear has presented at Geneva in the past, Oxygene is meant to challenge our thinking and help drive the debate around smart, safe and sustainable future mobility," said Delaney. "By contributing in this way to cleaner air generation, the tire could help enhance quality of life and health for city-dwellers."
