CONTRIBUTION TO THE STUDY OF AIR POLLUTION DUE TO TYRE WEAR ON PAVEMENTS

CONTRIBUTION A L'ETUDE DE LA POLLUTION DE L'AIR PAR LES PARTICLES PRODUITES LORS DU FROTTEMENT DES PNEUS SUR LE REVETEMENT DES ROUTES

CHEMICAL ELEMENTS CAUSING AIR POLLUTION WHICH HAD COLLECTED AT THE SIDE OF A MOTORWAY WERE PHYSICALLY AND CHEMICALLY STUDIED. THE RESULTS OF GRANULOMETRIC AND MICROBIOLOGICAL AIR ANALYSES OF THE DUST ARE REPORTED AS WELL AS A STUDY OF THE CARCINOGENIC FRACTIONS, PARTICULARLY AROMATIC "KW" IN THE ORGANIC FRACTION. ALSO REPORTED ARE THE MINERALOGICAL COMPOSITION AND THE SOLUBLE ELEMENTS IN THE SUSPENSION. CONSIDERING THE COMPOSITION AND PROPERTIES OF THE ABRADED MATERIALS IT IS POTENTIALLY POSSIBLE THAT THE PARTICLES, ARISING FROM TYRE WEAR ON THE ROAD SURFACE, PARTICULARLY WHEN STUDDED TYRES ARE USED, MAY CONSTITUTE A HEALTH HAZARD FOR SOCIETY IN CERTAIN CASES.
