Bridgestone could begin using rubber from Dandelions
Plenty of rubber can be cultivated from the weeds, with the OSU researchers estimating that they can produce between twenty and sixty-million tons of the stuff annually from their initial processing plant. A certain portion of that rubber will go to tire manufacturer Bridgestone for research. Initial testing has been very positive, meaning that we could someday be rolling on dubs made from yellow weeds.
