European SDG Roundtable on tyre & road wear particles, Oct 10
Tyre and Road Wear Particles (TRWP) are tiny debris which are formed during normal driving conditions from the friction between the tyre and the road necessary to ensure sufficient grip and safety. Because of their size and composition, these particles are commonly associated with microplastics; yet the generation of TRWP is influenced by a variety of external factors including, but not limited to, tyre design, such as vehicle characteristics, road surface, weather, road topology and driving behaviour.
To address this pressing challenge, CSR Europe and the European Tyre & Rubber Manufacturers Association (ETRMA) launched The European TRWP Platform. This cross-sectorial initiative aims to bring together relevant stakeholders, public authorities, and research institutes to share scientific knowledge and co-create mitigation actions to tackle the generation and transportation of tyre and road wear particles (TRWP) in the environment.
Join this session with experts from industry federations, public authorities, and companies operating in the road and automotive sectors and discover how to implement mitigation measures to reduce the generation and increase the capturing of TRWP.
Join European SDG Roundtable to:
- Acquire knowledge of the most effective mitigation measures to reduce the generation of TRWP.
- Engage with experts from industry federations, public authorities, and companies operating in the road and automotive sectors.
Who should attend:
- Sustainability managers
- Representatives from Civil Society Organisations
