Building Materials with air pollution control properties
To address the elimination of NOx gases in the atmosphere, building materials are being developed with photocatalyst additives such as TiO2. Through a sequence of chemical reactions initiated by sunlight, TiO2 additive can degrade to molecules of NOx and NO. Proper formulation of the raw materials used allows for the development of new cement mortars and paints highly efficient for the decontamination of urban atmospheres.
