Hulskotte, J.H.J. Jozwicka, M. Kranenburg, R. Kuenen, J.J.P. Visschedijk, A.J.H. Publication year 2018 Abstract The relative contribution of wear emissions to urban road transport PM10 emissions has steadily grown and reaches more than 50% in many countries. Based on reported emissions by European countries for brake and tire wear and road abrasion, an overview of the emissions for Europe is presented and further analyzed for gaps and consistency. Implied emission factors per vehicle kilometer are calculated to facilitate country intercomparison, showing that differences up to a factor of 2–4 persist even if the extremes are excluded. If the current trends continue, wear emissions are predicted to grow to about 80%–90% of the direct PM10 emissions from road transport after 2020. Resuspension of road dust PM10 is currently excluded from official emission reporting. A model-based estimate of resuspension emissions is used to assess its importance in comparison with wear emissions, suggesting that resuspension of road dust may be the dominant source of road transport particulate matter (PM) emissions in many cities. It is recommended to include road resuspension in the emission reporting to obtain a more transparent and complete overview of all road transport contributions to urban PM concentrations Subject Environment & SustainabilityEmissionUrbanisationBrake wearEmission inventoryEmission trendsEuropePM10PM2.5ResuspensionRoad abrasionTire wear To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:90626f80-c219-4dd8-aaed-44f4808f15a6 TNO identifier 792910 Source Non-exhaust emissions, 101-121 Document type bookPart Files To receive the publication files, please send an e-mail request to TNO Library.
