A dive into tire road wear particles

For decades, Michelin has been working to reduce all the environmental impacts of its products, resulting in many innovations (radial, silica, sustainable material, etc). Tire road wear particles (TRWP) are one such impact that is being intensively studied in the research centers of the Michelin group. In this presentation, Michelin's latest knowledge about TRWP will be presented.
