Lead Organisation: Enso Tyres [https://www.ensotyres.com/]

The project was looking to develop an innovative range of tyres that align with the unique characteristics of Electric Vehicles (EVs) to deliver improved EV performance whilst simultaneously reducing the environmental and air quality impact of tyre wear. The resultant tyres would be made from advanced raw materials that are environmentally friendly, greatly reducing the quantity and toxicity of harmful particulate matter (PM) emissions that current tyres release.

The project completed Phase 1 (Feasibility) successfully but wasn’t selected for Phase 2 funding.
