Bridgestone is planning to derive rubber from Russian dandelions to produce tires…

One thing that Russia has is dandelions and Russians love their dandelions and now we find out that these particular dandelions make good tires… 🙂

Bridgestone Americas is one of several collaborators taking part in the Russian Dandelion project being led by PENRA – the Program for Excellence in Natural Rubber Alternatives – based at the Ohio State University’s Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center. The company’s specific role in the project is to scrutinize the performance of the rubber produced by using natural rubber extracted from Russian Dandelion. (Link)

Russia the # 1 of the dandelions…
