Priča o automobilima se uglavnom svodi na izduvne gasove a niko i ne razmišlja o gumama. Koliko se zagađenje stvara njenim trošenjem. Ista priča i za frikcione materijale.
The EPA has identified rubber tire manufacturing facilities as major sources of hazardous air pollutants (HAP) emissions. These standards will implement section 112(d) of the Clean Air Act (CAA) by requiring all such major sources to meet HAP emission standards that reflect the application of maximum achievable control technology (MACT). These HAP include hexane, toluene, formaldehyde, styrene and methanol, which are associated with a variety of adverse health effects, such as chronic health disorders (e.g., polyneuropathy, degenerative lesions of the nasal cavity) and acute health disorders (e.g., respiratory irritation, nausea, blurred vision, and headaches). The final NESHAP reduces air toxic emissions from solvents, cements and coating material used in the tire manufacturing industry by approximately 1,100 tons annually.
