Tyre wear and tear is the second-largest microplastic pollutant in our environment, according to UK based “The Tire Collective”. As we move towards an electric future, tailpipe emissions will reduce but tyre emissions are projected to increase due to the added battery weight. The future of vehicle pollution will not come from tailpipe emissions, but from tyres. The Tyre Collective aims to mitigate emissions by capturing them at the source, stopping them from entering our environment.
