In recent years, the tyre industry has witnessed a transformative shift towards a more sustainable and circular future, driven by both environmental concems and technological advancements. This abstract explores the convergence of sustainability, circularity, and technology in shaping the future of tyres. With a focus on reducing the environmental impact of tyre manufacturing, usage, and disposal, this paper delves into innovative approaches such as bio-based materials, recycled rubber, and regenerative tyre designs. The integration of Internet of Things (IoT) technology and data analytics enables real-time monitoring of tyre health, contributing to enhanced safety and efficiency. Furthermore, the circular economy model gains traction, as tyre manufacturers adopt practices like retreading, remanufacturing, and recycling, extending the lifecycle of tyres and minimizing waste. By synthesizing sustainable materials, cutting-edge technology, and circular strategies, the tyre industry is poised to revolutionize mobility while addressing the urgent need for ecological responsibility.
