A new study published by AirUCI's Tires and Brakes (TAB) team is the subject of an article published June 3rd.  The team showed that most of the particles emitted during light braking carry an electric charge, largely dependent on the material makeup of brake pads—something that could potentially be exploited to help reduce air pollution from vehicles. “If the particles are charged, they can be removed easily from the air before they have a chance to have an impact at all on health,” said AirUCI Prof. Jim Smith, one of the faculty involved in the study.
