The content of tire and road surface wear particulates in the air over the roadway, as it has been specified in the previously submitted materials of the Russian delegation, amounts up to 60% from the total percentage of solid particles (WP-29-160-39). This paper presents further research into this subject.

GRPE-69-03 | Pollution of motor transport highways by particles from tire and road surface wear has a disastrous influence to human health During motor transport operation, elevated concentrations of solid particles are formed in the air over the roadway as a result of particulate matter emissions from vehicle exhaust gases, tire and road surface wear particles, background air pollution and other processes. The content of tire and road surface wear particulates in the air over the roadway, as it has been specified in the previously submitted materials of the Russian delegation, amounts up to 60% from the total percentage of solid particles (WP-29-160-39).

GRPE-66-03 | Proposal to establish a global technical regulation on vehicle interior air quality Materials and adhesives used in the construction of vehicle interiors can emit volatile organic compounds(VOCs), aldehydes, or other substances that are harmful to human body. Korea, Japan, and China have legislation related to this subject and ISO 12219-1:2012 concerns the measurement of volatile organic compounds in cabin interiors.
