LOWBRASYS – a LOW environmental impact BRAke SYStem

  1. 1. LOWBRASYS Guido PERRICONE (Brembo S.p.A.) This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 636592
  2. 2. 10 members from 5+1 European countries Total costs: 9.5 million € (7.4 funded) Project Start: 01. September, 2015 Project duration: 36 month (IT) (DE) (HU) (SE) (CZ) (EU) LOWBRASYS: a LOW environment impact BRAke SYStem This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 636592 2
  3. 3. Objectives of the project To demonstrate a novel and low environmental impact brake system that will reduce PM and PN particles (non-exhaust brake emissions) by at least 50%; To improve the measurement and understanding of micrometre-sized and ultrafine particles and their effects on health and the environment; Recommendations to policy makers. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 636592 3
  4. 4. Investigation of real-driving brake patterns Los Angeles City Track sub-cycle: 3h, 217 (out of 3600) brake events (temperature controlled) statistically representative for the whole cycle 5
  5. 5. Change in PM10 and PN for tested solutions with respect to the reference This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 636592 All ELPI+ channels (6 nm -10 mm) 8 different novel hard solutions Hard (brake disc + friction material) solutions Best performing 6 IncreaseDecrease
  6. 6. Other results on-going to contribute to 50% reduction This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 636592 By-wire Brake System MK C1 Smart dashboard Assessment of PM and PN reduction on-going Capturing system (attached to the caliper) 7
  7. 7. Policy maker recommendations  Contribution to PMP informal group under the GRPE Working Party of UNECE umbrella with know-how transfer in 2 dedicated Task Force of: 1. Real driving cycle (Lowbrasys is contributing with its Los Angeles City Track experience, while the PMP will include also a novel cycle based on WLTP database) 2. Measuring techniques (Lowbrasys will participate in a round- robin tests) This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 636592 8
  8. 8. TOXICOLOGICAL TESTs: ECOTOXICOLOGICAL TESTs: This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 636592 Next steps: health and environment assessment plan Human lung alveolar epithelial cells Human hepatocarcinoma cells C. Pears 9
  9. 9. Expected impacts 1. Environment: Cleaner, more efficient road transport activities through advances in brake concept that helps the transition to zero emissions vehicles in urban agglomerations. 2. Health: Substantial reduction of emission of PM in mass and numbers will translate into reduction of impact on human health with related socio-economic benefits for EU society. 3. Market: Contribution to strengthen the competitiveness of the EU car industry for the entire value chain: materials developers, technology providers, component manufacturers and OEMs. 4. Innovation and Policies: LOWBRASYS technology is candidate to become Best Available Technology (BAT) and serve as a basis to support preparation of robust measurement standards and Legislations on non-exhaust PM emissions. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 636592 10
  10. 10. Achievements of the project Indicator Units used Project Reference Project objective Project current achievement Type of vehicles targeted Pollutant emissions reduction: PM10 from the brake wear (unregulated) [%] 100 -50% -17% 1. Passenger car: Ford Focus. 2. Commercial vehicle: Ford Transit. Pollutant emissions reduction: PN from the brake wear (unregulated) [%] 100 -50% -98% Toxicity tests on human cell lines (in vitro) number of different cell lines - 3 15% Ecotoxicological assay number of different living organisms - 2 15% Patents [N] - Not quantified 5 (applications) This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 636592 11
