Curbing Wear
Particle Pollution

Non-exhaust road emissions are on the rise as the world strives toward net zero — but air quality doesn’t have to suffer.

Exhaust Emissions Aren’t The Only Source of Road Traffic Pollution

All vehicles generate wear particle pollution. Whether they’re gas-powered, diesel-powered, hybrid, or electric, vehicles driving on roads create friction that releases fine dust into the air.

1,000x Worse Than Exhaust Emissions

Braking, accelerating, and turning wear down tires and brakes over time. Tire and brake dust already significantly contribute to road traffic pollution, and this type of particulate pollution could be 1,000 times worse than exhaust emissions.

More fine particle pollution coming from Heavy electric vehicles

As the world adopts electric vehicles (EVs), exhaust emissions are projected to decline. But EVs are 20-30% heavier than gas-powered equivalents, and heavier vehicles create more friction on roads. That means more EVs could lead to increased wear particle pollution and lower air quality.

#1 Cause of road traffic Fine Particle Pollution by 2035

Wear particle pollution is poised to overtake exhaust emissions as the #1 cause of fine particle pollution from road traffic by 2035, but we don’t have to trade one pollutant for another to achieve a cleaner world.

Designing Customized Non-Exhaust Emissions Control

At Feorr, our engineers create innovative vehicle solutions that are simple to integrate. We work with auto manufacturers to reduce wear particle pollution. Customizable geolocation-based programming engages in the areas where air quality matters the most.

Our Solutions Can:

Address growing air pollution concerns proactively
Help meet narrowing air quality regulations
Increase driver access to low emissions zones (LEZ)
Integrate with existing supply chains
Complement other vehicle systems (braking, HVAC, etc.)
Elevate industry standards for eco-friendly vehicles

We Don’t Have to Compromise When it Comes to Creating Cleaner Air
