Title: Test Protocol for Evaluating Smog Reducing Roofing Tiles

University of California Riverside’s Clean Air team wants to know if so called “smog eating roof tiles” really work. Technology recently launched in the U.S. uses ceramic roof titles coated with titanium dioxide to convert the air pollutant NOx found in smog into nitrogen. While claims are impressive there is no peer reviewed data to support them. The team is testing the tiles in the UC Riverside Atmospheric Processes laboratory. Visit their exhibit to find out if these tiles are the green roofs of tomorrow.
