The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. announced April 22 that it has joined the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay Transport Partnership, which previously approved using the company’s Fuel Max linehaul tires on SmartWay tractors and trailers. SmartWay is a collaboration between the truck transportation industry and EPA to increase energy efficiency and significantly reduce greenhouse-gas emissions and air pollution.

“We continue to do our part for the environment with our innovative technologies that reduce tire rolling resistance and energy use at all facilities and eliminate all waste disposal in landfills,” says Steve McClellan, vice president of commercial tire systems for Akron, Ohio-based Goodyear. “We also offer solution-based business tools that calculate fuel consumption and help fleets lower their costs of operation.”
