Chassis Brakes and MANN+HUMMEL work to cut particulate emissions

Chassis Brakes International and Mann+Hummel have signed a strategic partnership agreement to develop brake systems with an add-on particle filter to reduce particulate emissions from passenger-car brakes.

Vehicle traffic is regarded as one of the primary sources of particle-based air pollution in cities and originates from internal combustion engine exhaust emissions, as well as from mechanically produced particulates from tires and brakes. Although brake emissions aren’t regulated, the two companies are committed to seriously addressing this topic in the near future.

Brake systems with add-on particle filter will join Chassis Brakes’ cleaner product family and its disc brake ZOHe AST™ (Active ShapeTechnology) which supports the reduction of CO2 emissions.
