Non-exhaust Particulate Emissions from Road Transport
An Ignored Environmental Policy Challenge
Non-exhaust emissions of particulate matter constitute a little-known but rising share
of emissions from road traffic and have significant negative impacts on public health.
This report synthesizes the current state of knowledge about the nature, causes, and
consequences of non-exhaust particulate emissions. It also projects how particulate
matter emissions from non-exhaust sources may evolve in future years and reflects
on policy instrument mixes that can address this largely ignored environmental issue.
