The smart FN NANO solution for clean air without emissions and smog
Dr. Jan Procházka, president of the Czech Society for Applied Photocatalysis (ČSAF), was invited to present the latest research of Advanced Materials JTJ and FN NANO in the field of photocatalysis at the University of Rostock, on the Albert Einstein campus, where the oldest photocatalytic conference SPASEC 25 is taking place and celebrating its 30th anniversary.
The main topic of the lecture is the issue of air pollution and emissions, which trouble us all. Dr. Procházka, who is also in the international scientific committee of the conference, will also speak in the panel discussion “Challenges facing the Commercialization of Photocatalysis”, together with Dr. Silvia Suárez and Prof. Adriana Zaleska-Medanska.
In his lecture, he will present the possibilities of mass commercialization of photocatalytic products and introduce world scientists to the use of innovative FN NANO® coatings for ecological and sustainable removal of emissions and smog, especially dangerous nitrogen oxides (NOX) and ozone (O3) from our cities. This knowledge is the result of long-term research, laboratory studies and measurement of the effect of photocatalytic coatings directly in polluted cities (Clear Cities project).
The lecture will also focus on economic, ecological and legislative solutions to the issue of urban pollution, which can be used immediately and in masse thanks to the FN NANO® coating technology. The coatings serve as a protective functional layer applied to the facades of houses, so they remain clean for a long time, without darkening and growth of algae. This effect is called self-cleaning and it creates a maintenance-free surface, eliminating the need for costly maintenance and cleaning of facades. Another benefit provided by the coating is clean air and removal of emissions.
This cutting-edge way to help the climate and our environment was developed in a joint project with the J. Heyrovský Institute of Physical Chemistry.
