The University of Milan analyzes the photocatalytic ventilated facade of Sanitas

Has passed over a year since it was launched The Medical and Welfare Center Milenium Alcobendas of Sanitas with Active Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic ™ and we have our first assessments of its Environmental contribution.The Chemistry Department of Milan University, led by Claudia Bianchi Professor, has investigated the Medical Centre facade for a year to test the effectiveness of anti-smog property, and to know the amount ofNOx that its surface has degraded throughout last year.According to the certification issued by the Professor, the new Iris Ceramica photocatalytic tiles not only provide good catalytic performance [Bianchi C.L. et al., CCC, 36 (2013) 116], but also fullfill the standard requirements in terms of hardness, porosity, glass surface and durability and it is presented as a very practical alternative to purify the air.Photocatalytic degradation tests carried out in air, using NOx and VOCs as pollutant models, confirm the good performance of these tiles to attack environmental pollution [Bianchi C.L. et al. Advances in Materials Science and Engineering, vol. 2012, Article ID 970182].Sanitas facade has an area of 1.500 mq coated by 120cmx60cm tiles dimensions. Based on these laboratory tests, we can state that, thanks to the presence of Active® tiles on Sanitas facade, in one year it has achieved:
Active® tiles ofSanitas building in Madrid, are an example of a suitable materials selection for the architecture which allow, not only enhance the external appearance of the building, but also help improving the quality of the air we all breathe.
