Light2cat - visible light active photocatalytic concretes for air pollution treatment
Summary: The goal of Light2CAT is to develop and document a new generation of highly efficient visible-light sensitive titanium dioxide (TiO2) for inclusion in concretes to be used in structures across the whole of Europe for improving ambient air quality independent, for the first time, of local climate conditions. To date, such environmental benefits have not been possible either indoors or outside of the Mediterranean countries because existing photocatalytic concrete does not perform well in conditions of low sunlight or under Northern skies since the TiO2 contained in it is only activated by ultraviolet (UV) light.
