Improved Nano-Structure for Photocatalytic Efficient Cleaning of Surfaces

Project description

Self-cleaning nanotechnology solutions for buildings

Poor air quality is a threat to human health with nitrogen oxide (NOx) gases being one of the worst offenders. INSPECS is developing a non-toxic surface treatment for concrete buildings based on titania nanoparticles. These photocatalysts accelerate chemical reactions using light to convert NOx and organic compounds like bacteria or fungi into harmless forms. Urban air quality will be improved through the continuous removal of NOx from ambient air. Water and soil quality will benefit from the reduced need for chemical cleaning agents as the treated surface area has a self-cleaning effect, which reduces maintenance.
