Cement Neutralizes Pollutants

January 21, 2009 | By | Reply More

There are  reports that an Italian company, Italcementia has developed a cement enhanced with titanium oxide that can neutralize some harmful pollutants when exposed to sunlight or ultraviolet light.

Titanium oxide, which is used in white paints to make them brighter, was added to cement to provide the architect involved in the Jubilee Church in Rome with a very white material.

It was after this that it was realized that the cement had the ability to considerably reduce pollution.

The jury is still out on this claim but a pollution-destroying cement in worldwide use might make the Kyoto agreement
