  • 4th Technology-Business Networking Event HABITAT, CONSTRUCTION, ARCHITECTURE & CERAMICS DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT Background: Air Organizers: pollution causes harm to both health and environment. A significant proportion of Europe’s population live in areas such as cities where of the the average daily exceedances of air quality standards occur. ThisWeekly evolution evolution ofaverage daily puts Fig1. Weekly cycle at 2 at the Valencia stations (UTC those populations at health risk, particularly cycle of NO2of NOthe Valencia stations from time). ozone, nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter (UTC time). Supporters: to reduce air pollution remains an pollution. The need important issue. The effects caused by air pollution depend mainly on the concentration of pollutants, chemical nature, exposure time and temporal fluctuations on their concentration, and also on the receptor sensitivity and synergisms between pollutants. The primary pollutants are oxides of nitrogen (NOx) mainly nitrogen monoxideCOMPANY and ROLE IN THE PROJECT NAME OF THE SPEAKER, POSITION IN THE (NO), and Figure 2.

To conduct studies about the efficiency of BIONICTILE-OFFNOx porcelain ceramic in reducing nitrogen oxides present in the atmosphere under representative conditions of an urban environment in terms of daily NOx pattern concentration, humidity and radiation (city of Valencia), using the Supporters: Atmospheric Simulation chamber EUPHORE (European PHOto-REactor) NAME OF THE SPEAKER, POSITION IN THE COMPANY and ROLE IN THE PROJECT Cerámica Innova 4: From research to market Logo of the entity

  • 4th Technology-Business Networking Event HABITAT, CONSTRUCTION, ARCHITECTURE & CERAMICS DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT  Other highlights • Organizers: EUPHORE chambers are one of the best equipped European outdoor photoreactors for studying atmospheric chemistry, capable of simulating the daily patterns of total NOx for urban environments and for analyzing the efficiency of the reduction potential of oxides of nitrogen, and VOCs in the atmosphere of materials impregnated with a photoactive additive under different typical urban conditions and/or 24-hour solar cycles. Supporters: • Due to its high volume, about 200 m3, a huge surface of material could be installed inside one of the EUPHORE photochemical chambers ( several m2) where they can be continuously exposed to controlled atmospheric NOx concentrations, natural sunlight, as well to humidity and other pollutants. In that sense, EUPHORE facilities are powerful tools for studying nitrogen-oxides, tropospheric O3, and VOCs reduction potential of materials impregnated with photoactive additives.
