Filtration for cleaner mobility: Solutions for sustainable & green mobility
Sustainable mobility of the future for today
In 2010 there were almost one billion cars on the road worldwide. While this seems like a huge amount, experts predict that this number will increase by around 70% by 2025. And that’s without including buses, motorcycles, trucks and other vehicles. The impact on global exhaust gas and particulate matter pollution levels is immense.
But did you know that exhaust gases only account for around 15 percent of emissions? In fact, about 85 percent of all vehicle emissions are caused by tire and brake abrasion. Which means that even alternative drive systems are not emission-neutral.
So the big question remains: is clean mobility even possible? Can mobility be sustainable, in a world that is constantly on the move?
We are convinced it is. And we're proving it every day.

Our portfolio includes OE and aftermarket solutions for classic combustion vehicles and alternative drive systems. Filtration solutions from MANN+HUMMEL not only reduce pollution from cars and other vehicles. They also increase the efficiency and life expectancy of classic and alternative engines, and protect vehicle users from pollen, viruses, fine dust, bacteria, mold and many other threats in the air.
- We equip vehicle interiors with individual elements or smart systems from MANN+HUMMEL. Our ensure that vehicle users can breathe safely, whether you choose high-performance, activated carbon, biofunctional filters or more, that prevent pollutants and harmful gasses from entering the cabin.
- For combustion vehicles, we offer , and . Our products reliably protect engines from contamination and wear, and ensure the highest air and fluid quality, excellent engine performance and maximum service life.
- For alternative drives, we develop highly specialized . We also focus on electric axles and hybrid transmissions, which we equip with effective oil filter systems and transmission oil filters.
- Regardless of the drive, we counter fine dust pollution from tire wear and brake dust with modern ideas and pioneering innovations. Our can be mounted in and on the vehicle as an or as a , where they remove pollutants from the air thanks to powerful HEPA filters. And with our , which we mount in the immediate vicinity of the brake caliper, we combat fine dust directly where it’s generated.

Finally, our coolant particle filters and ion exchanger filters protect the fuel cell from wear, overheating, and short circuits.
Fine dust threatens our health and challenges politics
Cars, buses, trucks, trains: urban mobility in cities and industrial areas poses a major threat to people, machines and the environment. The WHO considers the particulate matter produced by vehicles to be extremely harmful to health.
Fine dust limits are regularly exceeded in large cities or even in underground train stations. The concentration of particles sizes PM10 and PM2.5 is alarming. These particles, which are smaller than 10 and 2.5 micrometers, can penetrate the human body and cause serious damage. This is why the EU is planning to pass a new law that will impose stricter PM10 and PM2.5 limits to improve air quality. Since electric cars also emit particulate matter via tire wear and brake dust, this new regulation will affect all drive systems.
All modern vehicles with internal combustion engines currently meet the strict guidelines on CO2 emissions from cars. The task now is to reduce the remaining emissions via highly effective filtration that prepare today's vehicles for a more sustainable and cleaner mobility of the future.
