The voice for professional people working with the science and engineering of rubber materials
Over the last decade, public awareness about plastic pollution in the ocean has rocketed, as have the efforts to tackle it through measures such as plastic bag, straw and spoon bans. These will help to tackle the problem but there is an invisible pollutant that is one of the biggest contributors - tyre dust from the wearing down of tyres - and has so far escaped the limelight. It’s called an ‘invisible pollutant’ because its properties mean that it goes largely unseen and because very few people even know about it.
Join us to explore the causes, impacts and solutions to stem the tide of pollution from this invisible pollutant on our roads.
