PanAridus joins Cooper Tire and other consortium partners to develop guayule plant-based polymer

December 24, 2013 |

In Ohio, Cooper Tire & Rubber Company announced that PanAridus will join the company and its consortium partners on a previously-announced $6.9 million Biomass Research and Development Initiative grant toward development of guayule plant-based polymers for use in tire manufacturing.

PanAridus has worked to uncover means for growing a higher yield of domestically grown guayule rubber per acre than from imported Hevea rubber, and even more inexpensively than synthetic rubber. Its advanced seed varieties ensure a supply of guayule rubber for applications, and their agronomic techniques give farmers a more certain and profitable crop.
