Device to Capture Pollution

Tyres wear down every time a vehicle accelerates, brakes or corners. We discovered that tyre wear is charged by friction with the road. Our patent-pending device uses electrostatics and airflow to capture them.

Advance Research on Tyre Wear

Today tyre wear is an emerging field and we work with leading researchers on characterisation, toxicology and pollution pathways.

From Pollution to Products

Tyre wear is a form of micronised rubber. The particulates we capture can be upcycled into industrial and consumer applications such as bitumen, shoe soles and soundproofing, creating a closed-loop system.
