Ceracasa, a Tile of Spain branded manufacturer, has produced Bionictile® , a ceramic product designed to remove harmful nitrous oxide (NOx) pollution from the air through a process of photocatalysis. According to Ceracasa, the product may be used as external ceramic cladding, contributing to a building’s eco-efficiency.
Bionictile will be introduced by the Dallas-based tile company Pantheon® at the HEALTHCAREDESIGN.09 tradeshow event held on Oct. 31-Nov. 3, Orlando, FL.
Bionictile® has been developed with the collaboration of the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia-Chemical Technology Institute, in a project led by Professor Dr. Hermenegildo Garcia and his team of researchers. For the analysis of the ceramic samples, the ISO 22197-12007 standards have been used. Data has shown high decontamination levels per hour/SQM, notes Ceracasa.
Further, Bionictile® received the Alfa de Oro by the Spanish Society of Ceramics and Glass in February during the 2009 edition of Cevisama.
