Geneva, 23 July 2020: The Tire Industry Project (TIP) is the leading forum for the tire industry on sustainability issues. Marking our 15th anniversary, we are sharing, free-of-charge, our scientific research on tire and road wear particles (TRWP), eliminating the fees often required to review scientific papers.
Peer-reviewed studies from more than a decade of research into TRWP – the tiny debris produced by necessary friction between tires and road surface – are now available free-of-charge online. By sharing these studies, TIP hopes to reach stakeholders who may have previously been discouraged by paywalls.
TIP is committed to making important contribution to the scientific understanding of TRWP and its potential impacts on human health and the environment.
