Abstract

Tijdens de Eurobike in Friedrichshafen, eind augustus, toonde bandenfabrikant Vredestein een prototype van de Fortezza Flower Power, een racefietsband die gemaakt is van rubber uit de wortels van Russische paardenbloemen. Deze innovatie is mede mogelijk gemaakt door een samenwerking tussen onder andere Vredestein en de Wageningen University & Research (WUR) binnen het EU onderzoekproject Drive4EU. De fietsband is van verre herkenbaar dankzij de groene ‘schouder’.

Vredestein showed a prototype of its Fortezza Flower Power at the Eurobike exhibition in Friedrichshafen in August. This innovative road tyre is made of rubber extracted from the roots of dandelions. The prototype is the result of a EU joint initiative in which Vredestein and Wageningen University & Research (WUR) take part, called DRIVE4EU.
