Degradation of pollutants by photocatalytic paving slabs

In densely populated areas smog and nitrogen oxides are a major problem. Even if the road traffic density slightly slackens during summer holidays, the situation remains tense. Using AirClean paving slabs, offered by F.C. Nüdling Betonelemente GmbH + Co. KG, may produce relief in the future.

AirClean is a special paving system providing a photocatalytic effect. It has primarily been developed for use in urban areas with a high traffic density where the most pollutants occur. By installing the paving slabs, it is possible to reduce the amount of health-damaging substances right where the...
