Tires To Europe

- Apr 03, 2020-

A British emissions testing firm has declared pollution from tire wear can be significantly worse that tailpipe emissions, but its testing methods and findings are being questioned by the European Tire & Rubber Manufactuers Association (ETRMA).Stockenchurch-based Emissions Analytics Ltd., an independent testing firm specializing in measuring real-world emissions and fuel efficiency, said "non-exhaust emissions" — tire-wear particles, brake wear, road debris, etc. — can be up to 1,000 times worse than emissions from exhaust, the impact of which has been diminished due to tighter emissions controls and the switch to hybrid and electric vehicles.
