Improved Nano-Structure for Photocatalytic Efficient Cleaning of Surfaces

Descrizione del progetto

Soluzioni nanotecnologiche autopulenti per edifici

La cattiva qualità dell’aria è una minaccia per la salute umana e i gas di ossido di azoto (Nox) si annoverano tra i peggiori responsabili. INSPECS sta sviluppando un trattamento superficiale non tossico per edifici in calcestruzzo a base di nanoparticelle di titanio. Questi fotocatalizzatori accelerano le reazioni chimiche utilizzando la luce per convertire NOx e composti organici, come batteri o funghi, in forme innocue. La qualità dell’aria urbana sarà migliorata attraverso la continua rimozione di NOx dall’aria ambiente. La qualità dell’acqua e del terreno trarrà beneficio dalla ridotta necessità di detergenti chimici poiché la superficie trattata ha un effetto autopulente, che riduce la manutenzione.

Obiettivo

The photocatalytic self-cleaning products can be greatly beneficial by reducing the frequency of cleaning operations in exterior surfaces, reducing the maintenance and operational costs, and preserving the ecosystem, by avoiding the use of cleaning products with chemical agents. Still, available self-cleaning coatings are very limited, presenting short lifetimes and poor self-cleaning capacity. Joma developed the next generation of photocatalytic self-cleaning and anti-polluting technologies for the efficient treatment of concrete surfaces in urban areas, addressing not only the need for buildings and infrastructures’ maintenance reduction but also the major societal problem of urban air quality.

Joma will deliver an improved titania-based technology, with a unique and proprietary nanostructure. The technology brings together a superior self-cleaning performance, anti-greening proven efficiency and anti-polluting potential, based on its higher photocatalytic activity, higher specificity for removal of the surrounding NO2, cost-effectiveness, high level of customization, possibility to combine with water protection and significant maintenance need reduction and consequent cost savings. The customized nanoparticle is the key component of Joma’s products representing an outstanding innovation against current stated-of-the-art in self-cleaning technologies.

To bridge the remaining steps towards full scale commercialization of our nanotechnology, Joma has to widely demonstrate its economic and environmental assets over competing solutions and to consolidate our strategic partnering in the concrete manufacturing and maintenance industry value chain. Thus, Joma will leverage from the current SME instrument application as a stepping stone to prepare the company’s business strategy and to propel the commercialization of our technology, which we expect to become a new reference in the construction industry sector.
