PPG, Bridgestone receive DOE funds to develop fuel-efficient truck, bus tires


PPG recently announced that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is providing funding to support a $1.25 million collaborative project with Bridgestone Americas, Inc., (Bridgestone). This project focuses on improving the fuel efficiency of truck and bus radial tires using PPG’s AGILON® performance silica platform. The goal of the project is to deliver prototype tires to DOE that help trucks and buses achieve fuel-efficiency improvements of 4 to 6 percent while maintaining or improving tear strength and tread wear. Research and development work for the project will be completed at PPG’s Monroeville, Pennsylvania, facility.

Anup Jain, PPG vice president, specialty coatings and materials, said PPG’s collaboration with Bridgestone has the potential to significantly change the truck tire industry. “We are excited to partner with Bridgestone on this important project,” he said. “The DOE funding validates what our preliminary research already has shown – that Agilon performance silica has significant potential as a next-generation filler to help increase truck tire fuel efficiency.”

A freshly painted building and new garden are brightening the lives of residents of the Amsta Karaad facility in Overtoom, Amsterdam.
