Building Materials Ceramics

Building materials: ceramics for facades that cleans the air of cities BionicTile by Ceracasa is a tile which, through sunlight, is capable of cleaning the air of nitrogen oxides. This is due to that tile carries an enamel catalyst that, thanks to the sunlight and humidity, react with particulate pollutants (NOx and HNO3) cities and converts them into harmless for human health (nitrates) substances. BionicTile by Ceracasa, is inspired by the world of plants. Imitate the design of the microrelief of the textures of the leaves to reproduce and thus increase the specific surface area of contact with the air, favoring the process of fotocatalizacion with the Sun’s rays. According to tests conducted by the Polytechnic University of Valencia, BionicTile tiles are able to decompose 25,09 micrograms of NOx per m per hour. BionicTile is a solution developed by Ceracasa and FMC-FORET enterprises. The tile has been tested by the Institute of chemistry and technology of the Universidad Politecnica de Valencia, the foundation of the center of environmental studies in the Mediterranean, ReMa consulting and environmental engineering and GiGa University Pompeu Fabra of Barcelona.
