RECYCLING

Introducing an innovative process for reusing polystyrene waste and creating more sustainable Michelin products, developed by our partners at Pyrowave. 

The process uses microwaves to break down discarded yogurt cups, food containers, and other plastic packaging to recover their original building block: styrene. 

This recovered styrene is then used to make new packaging and products for the automotive, home appliance and tire industries. For example, styrene is a key component in the synthetic rubbers used to make tires.
With this technology, the equivalent of 80,000 tons* of polystyrene waste could be recycled into MICHELIN® tires each year.

UPTIS

The MICHELIN UPTIS (Unique Puncture-Proof Tire System) is a revolutionary new airless mobility solution for passenger vehicles. 

It eliminates the risk of flat tires and other air loss failures resulting from punctures or road hazards.

Thanks to Michelin's expertise in high-tech materials, UPTIS tires are a significant leap forward in airless mobility technology. UPTIS tires eliminate the need for air pressure checks, making them ideal for self-driving vehicles and passenger car fleets.

The UPTIS tire's revolutionary design and materials will yield sustainability benefits such as reducing the number of tires destined for scrap, and reducing overall raw materials and energy used in tire production.

*In-house “scrapyard” survey (2012-2015) based on a sample of 135,000 tires and extrapolated on a global scale (estimates indicate that one billion end-of-life tires are discarded each year).

GREEN STAR


The MICHELIN Green Star is an annual award recognizing restaurants at the forefront of the industry when it comes to sustainable practices. 

Recipients hold themselves to exceptionally high ethical and environmental standards, and even though each restaurant works in its own way, each implements a wide range of green initiatives.

These include working with sustainable producers and suppliers, avoiding waste, reducing or even removing plastic and other non-recyclable materials from their supply chain, or many other responsible practices.

Recipients offer dining experiences that combine culinary excellence with outstanding eco-friendly commitments, and are a source of inspiration both for avid foodies and the hospitality industry as a whole.
