Nanogreenhouse: Paint Your Walls with Photo-catalysts


We have discussed the miraculous pollution-fighting properties of titanium dioxide before; now you can have them in your home or office. Toronto's Nanogreenhouse will apply their "Smart Coating System" which will "react in the presence of light to neutralize bacteria, mould and volatile organic compounds while producing oxygen and water." for about 3 bucks per square foot. TiO2 systems are usually proposed for outdoor use where there is lots of ultraviolet light, so we are not certain about the effectiveness of painting a condo with it as they propose. However but might work in offices where the flourescent lights are on all day long. ::Nanogreenhouse via ::The Star
