Non-exhaust Emissions Concern

- Source: https://dieselnet.com/news/2020/12oecd.php

A new study released by the Paris based Organizati­on for Economic Co-operation and Developmen­t states that “non-exhaust emissions will soon overtake vehicle exhaust as the leading source of fine particles released into the air by road traffic.” Non-exhaust particle emissions have been largely ignored by environmen­tal agencies but as electric vehicles become more and more prevalent the need to monitor non-exhaust emissions has become increasing­ly relevant. Emissions from road traffic consist of airborne particulat­e matter generated by the wearing down of brakes, clutches, tires and road surfaces, as well as by the suspension of road dust.
