Clean air is essential to people’s health
and the environment.
Since the industrial revolution, however,
the quality of the air that people breathe
has deteriorated considerably - mainly
as a result of human activities.
The need to deliver cleaner air has been
recognised for several decades with actions
having been taken at national and EU levels.
The LIFE+ project, PhotoPAQ,
“PHOTOcatalytic remediation Processes
on Air Quality”, aims at providing new
solutions for improving urban air quality.
This will be achieved by demonstrating
the usefulness of photocatalytic
materials for air pollution reduction
in the urban environment.
