Microplastics filter passes endurance test: Positive interim results for URBANFILTER project

Filtering out microplastics where they are created
  • Smart: lab and field tests prove efficiency of system
  • Clean: harmful particles such as tire wear do not get into bodies of water
  • In demand: collaborations underway

The Audi Environmental Foundation has developed filters for urban runoff in conjunction with the Technical University of Berlin. They prevent tire wear particles and other environmentally harmful substances from being washed into sewers and bodies of water along with rainwater. Initial field and lab tests have now demonstrated the efficiency of the system.
