Innovative enamel building blocks are able to decompose pollutants in the air, and a cleaning quality comparable with the best natural “filters” – poplars, write Chinese media.
BEIJING, 22 Jan –, Zhanna Manukyan. The Chinese company in coastal Zhejiang province, near one of the most polluted cities in the world Shanghai said it has developed a new enamel building blocks, which are able to decompose pollutants in the air, the newspaper China Daily.
“We have added to the enamel vysokoerudirovannye, photocosmetology nanometric material. It reacts with pollutants (sulphides and oxides) in a process similar to photosynthesis”, — quotes the edition of the researcher of the company Kaier New Materials Shu Warsaw.
According to him, every 200 square feet of such blocks have a purifying effect, as 14 of poplars — trees that are considered to be one of the most effective natural air purifiers.
It is reported that the water that will be produced during a chemical reaction, will form a thin film, so the walls of the building with the street parties don’t need to flush.
According to the company, the “cathartic effect” was proven in January at the test center of building materials. However, the company still does not plan to enter the market, as the Chinese test institutes don’t have standards for this kind of material, so the company is looking for a foreign organization.
However, some experts have already raised doubts in the technical applicability of this material.
