BIOVITAE® STREET ™ is the new product made with BIOVITAE® technology, an outdoor lighting system able to combat atmospheric pollution through the combination of BIOVITAE® and Titanium Dioxide (TiO2).
The main external polluting sources are fossil fuel heating systems, vehicular traffic, industrial settlements, agriculture and livestock. Vehicle traffic remains the main source of PM10 emissions, nitrogen oxides and volatile organic compounds, which are responsible for urban pollution. In recent years, research in the field of materials science has developed a material based on titanium dioxide (TiO2) particles with high photocatalytic characteristics. TiO2 is present in nature in three forms: rutile, anatase and brookite. Rutile is the most common form. The frequency of BIOVITAE ® (patented) is the only one able to trigger the photo-activation of the TiO2 without emitting UV rays, therefore without any risk for living beings. BIOVITAE® STREET™ transforms micro-organisms responsible for high levels of pollution and blocking traffic, making them harmless. In this way we can have back clean air in our cities.
