This Device Captures Microplastics From Car Tires

Car tires are a major source of microplastic pollution in our oceans, shedding more than 3 million tons per year.

The Tyre Collective is working to reduce the amount of microplastics in our waterways with a device that uses electrostatics and airflow to capture up to 60% of tire dust.

This not only protects waterways but also stops particles from becoming airborne and affecting our lungs.

The dust can then be recycled into ink, used in 3D printing, or in new tires.
