New nanomaterials offer promising avenues for future innovation, which can contribute towards the sustainability and resource efficiency of the tyre industry. Yet uncertainty over environmental health and safety (EHS) risks appears to be a main and continuous concern for the development of new nanomaterials in tyre production, even for those closest to market. Lack of sector-specific guidance represents a major gap.




Data, assumptions and detailed results for the life-cycle analysis

Summaries of the primary data modules and data sources used for the life-cycle inventory of reference and nano-enabled tyre product systems are presented in Tables C.1, C.2 and C.3 for the European Union, United States and the People’s Republic of China geographic scopes, respectively.
