Nanotechnology and Tyres
Greening Industry and Transport
New nanomaterials offer promising avenues for future innovation, which can contribute
towards the sustainability and resource efficiency of the tyre industry. Yet uncertainty
over environmental health and safety (EHS) risks appears to be a main and continuous
concern for the development of new nanomaterials in tyre production, even for those
closest to market. Lack of sector-specific guidance represents a major gap.
