British agency Emissions Analytics has found that normal car tires, when in use, emit 1,000 times more hazardous particles into the atmosphere than engine exhaust.

  • To confirm their conclusions, the experts conducted an experiment, during which they drove an unnamed "popular family hatchback", the engine of which meets the latest emission class Euro 6d. By measuring the level of emissions of harmful particles, the researchers found that 5.8 grams of harmful particles are emitted per kilometer, which is 1289 times more than the emission limit for a modern engine (4.5 milligrams per kilometer).
  • Emissions Analytics assured that they carried out their tests on a car with fresh modern tires and at the correct pressure in them. Improper pressure tires or rougher asphalt will further increase emissions.
  • Representatives of the agency also noted that environmental standards for engines are constantly being tightened, and emissions of harmful substances from tires are currently not regulated in any way. According to the results of the study, its authors proposed to introduce norms of "non-exhaust" emissions into practice and extend them to all types of cars, including models with all-electric power plants. According to experts, the way to reduce this type of emissions is to reduce the weight of cars, as well as use high quality tires and check the pressure in them regularly.
