Smog busting pavements

Eurobuild CEE 30 April 2019
Smog busting pavements
The pavements use titanium oxide catalysts to break down noxious fumes
POLAND Adrog has just won a tender to lay 5,300 sqm of air-purifying payments along al. Lotników as well as 6,000 sqm long al. Wojska Polskiego, 450 sqm along al. Solidarności, more than 2,000 sqm along ul. Czecha and Sejmikowa, and 1,500 sqm along ul. Zawodzie.

This is the first time in Europe that anti smog pavements, which absorb pollutants including nitrogen dioxide, are to be laid on such a large scale. The first such pavement was trialled at Rondo Daszyńskiego in Warsaw by Skanska working with the Municipal Roads Authority, and concrete producer Górażdże Cement. Due to the success of the trials the authorities have decided to use the same paving elsewhere in Warsaw. Plans are also being considered to use the same paving along 5,300 sqm oful. Górczewska, 4,700 sqm along al. Jana Pawła II, 4,800 sqm along ul. Idzikowskiego, and 5,100 sqm along ul. Reymonta. The concrete uses titanium dioxide nanoparticles as a photocatalyst to break down the pollutants. The developers of the concrete claim that it can reduce airborne pollution by up to 30 pct.
