Big news of the day
Perhaps you’ve spotted this striking image as it made the rounds on social media over the past two days- a bright blue, futuristic “living” tire, the result of an inspiring fusion of technologies that offers a never-before-seen solution for sustainable mobility. Terry Gettys, Michelin Executive Committee Group member and Executive Vice President of Research and Development, presented the VISION tire concept: an airless tire composed of naturally sourced materials which is 100% biodegradable.
“It is as beautiful as the nature which inspired it”, stated Mr Gettys at the press conference held earlier today in the Agora.

Five hundred hours. 25,000 miles, and no fuel. Thanks to Solar Impulse 2, with Solvay as a main technological partner, participants got to take a look at a mock-up of the aircraft that completed a revolutionary, 17 months trip around the world.
