Toyota To Pioneer Use Of Biosynthetic Rubber in Engine and Drive System Hoses

Next month, Toyota will become the world's first automaker to use biohydrin, a newly-developed biosynthetic rubber product, in engine and drive system hoses.

Since plants absorb CO2 from the atmosphere during their lifespan, such bio-materials achieve an estimated 20 percent reduction in material lifecycle carbon emissions (in comparison to conventional petroleum-based hydrin rubber).

 The first vehicles to use vacuum sensing hoses* made from biohydrin rubber will be produced in May, with usage expected…

Beneath the SUV's snout a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, along with electric motors in the front and rear, holds court with a continuously variable transmission. They work in tandem to produce a very plenteous 194…
