The Tyre Collective

About

A system to capture and recycle micro particles of rubber from tyre usage, reducing dispersal in the environment

Tyre particles are the second-largest microplastic pollutant in our environment. As we move towards electric vehicles, tyre particle dispersals are projected to increase from the added battery weight. The Tyre Collective aims to mitigate tyre emissions by capturing them at the source, to ensure clean air, safeguarding our environment and health. The patent-pending technology uses electrostatics to capture tyre wear right at the wheel and store it. The particles are gathered in a removable unit and can subsequently be recycled for a variety of applications, creating the opportunity for a circular process.
