    They worked out that by combining biological fermentation using microbes with conventional catalytic refining to make isoprene, the main raw ingredient of tires, they can in effect make renewable car tires from the biomass in trees, grass etc.

    I presume eventually with further research we will find cost effective ways of producing anything we need/use but without fossil fuels.

    I bet that anti-renewable moron Donald Trump would hate this!
