Pollution Eating Paint?
We at Courtney & Wise are very environmentally conscious, and we always use environmentally responsible materials and techniques. naturally, we were interested to hear about the project in Manila to clean the severely polluted air with a special paint. Called KNOxOUT, this paint uses special technology to capture chemicals that pollute the air.
We've seen before in this blog that many technologies, from nanoparticles of silver that create antibacterial surfaces to solar cells, have a place in paint technology. Paint can, in fact, serve as a delivery medium for an impressive range of solutions to problems.
These innovations may not be practical for everyone today, but we are encouraged by the prospects for paint in the future. It's gratifying to be part of something with so much potential for good.
