Brussels 18 February 2020 – Building on the work done in the past two years , the European Tyre and Road Wear Particles (TRWP) Platform met on 18 February to discuss its 2020 objectives.

Exchange of knowledge, a “Blueprint for Action on TRWP Hotspots” and a project proposal for the EU LIFE Programme will be at the centre of the European TRWP Platform’s activities for 2020.

Launched by the European Tyre and Rubber Manufacturers Association (ETRMA) and facilitated by CSR Europe, the Platform addresses the environmental impact of TRWP. It is a dedicated multi-stakeholder roundtable facilitated by CSR Europe, to gather scientific knowledge and co-design mitigation options to address the environmental impact of tyre and road wear particles (TRWP). With members from government, academia, NGOs and industry, the Platform aims at having an open and inclusive dialogue among all relevant stakeholders to explore a balanced and holistic approach to the challenge of tyre and road wear particles.

Further steps will be organized in the course of the spring of 2020 on the different topics dealt with by the Platform.
