February 15, 2018 |

In Tennessee, Bridgestone Americas and Versalis are forming a strategic partnership to develop and deploy a comprehensive technology package to commercialize guayule in the agricultural, sustainable-rubber and renewable-chemical sectors.

The partnership combines Bridgestone’s leadership position in guayule agriculture and production technologies with Versalis’ core strengths in commercial-scale process engineering and market development for renewables. This partnership brings together the two largest global guayule research efforts under common project management, working toward a common goal of deploying a commercially attractive technology package. The two companies will also make the new joint technology available to industrial partners willing to cooperate in maximizing the value of these innovative products.
