We think this is the first experiment of its kind in an external environment. By measuring Nitrogen Dioxide pollutants it will be possible to assess the effectiveness of special photocatalytic paint applied to the surfaces in the area. If the tests indicate a substantial reduction in pollutants it could unlock the possibility that surfaces across the city could help to clean London's air. In addition…
