The Prosolve370e is a decorative architectural module that effectively reduces air pollution in cities when installed near traffic ways or on building facades. The modules are coated with superfine titanium dioxide (TiO2), a pollution-fighting technology that is activated by ambient daylight. Employing a unique configuration of this technology, the tiles neutralize air pollutants when sited near traffic or densely polluted conditions. As a modification to existing architectural surfaces, Prosolve370e essentially “tunes buildings” to respond better to their immediate environments. The three-dimensional architectural modules eliminate pollutants (NOx) from the air.
The modules have been installed across the globe, with projects in Mexico, Australia, and United Arab Emirates. In 2012, Prosolve370e was installed at Torre de Especialidades, Hospital Manuel Gea Gonzales. According to technology studies, it is reducing the pollution of a thousand cars per day. Prosolve370e also features on many mainstream media channels such as CNN, and in editorials as an example of a new breed of environmentally active buildings.
