Raman Tweezers for Tire and Road Wear Micro- and Nanoparticles analysis
Tire and Road Wear Particles (TRWP) are non-exhaust particulate matter generated by road transport means during the mechanical abrasion of tires, brakes and roads. TRWP accumulate on the roadsides
Pollution from Transport: Detection of Tyre Particles in Environmental Samples
Transport is one of the most important sources of environmental pollution. More and more information has shown that one of the greatest sources of emissions from transport are emissions related to
In Vitro Digestion of Tire Particles in a Fish Model (Oncorhynchus mykiss): Solubilization Kinetics of Heavy Metals and Effects of Food Coingestion.
The results indicate that the solubilization of heavy metals was greatly enhanced by gastrointestinal fluids compared to that by mineral water, indicating that the potential ecological risk of TRWP in the different environmental compartments and their potential toxic impacts on terrestrial and aquatic organisms remain largely underinvestigated.
Enhancement of metrological support in measuring the composition and concentrations of pollutants in wear products of automobile tires
The article shows that the high environmental hazard of tires is caused not so much by the mass of pollutants of dispersed particles, but by the toxic properties of the materials used in their


Tire Abrasion as a Major Source of Microplastics in the Environment
Traffic-related non-exhaust particulate matter mainly consists of tire wear, brake wear, and road wear. For this study, passive-samplers were placed near highly frequented roads in industrial,
Properties of roadway particles from interaction between the tire and road pavement
A large fraction of urban PM10 concentrations is due to non-exhaust traffic emissions, including road dust, particles from tire/road interface, and brake lining particles. Although potential health
Size and composition of airborne particles from pavement wear, tires, and traction sanding.
Over 90% of PM10 was mineral particles, and mineralogy of the dust and source apportionment showed that they originated from both traction sand and pavement aggregates, and Mass size distributions were dominated by coarse particles.
Comparison of tire and road wear particle concentrations in sediment for watersheds in France, Japan, and the United States by quantitative pyrolysis GC/MS analysis.
This study detected TRWP in the surficial sediment of watersheds characterized by a wide diversity of population densities and land uses by using a novel quantitative pyrolysis-GC/MS analysis for rubber polymer, and should provide useful information for assessing potential aquatic effects related to tire service life.
