The switch to low-PAH oils will involve a huge amount of discussion with vehicle makers to agree new formulations. Another worry for the tyre industry concerns the availability of the most promising replacement oils, MES (Mild Extraction Solvate) and TDAE (Treated Distillate Aromatic Extract). There are also concerns that there are no standards in place to measure the PAH content in the oil, or in the tyre.
