Bosch subsidiary Buderus Guss has developed an innovative brake disc that generates up to 90 percent less brake dust than conventional brake discs. The iDisc also lasts up to double the amount of time of conventional discs, and comes with other safety and efficiency benefits.

The initial price tag is quite high, but considering that brake and tire wear are responsible for a huge percentage of driving-related particulate emissions, it might be more than worth it.
