A new mural at Saski Park in Sandomierz, Poland, features a special photocatalytic façade paint that reduces air pollution. It also has anti-smog properties. The mural covers most of a pressure tower rising high above the park. It was painted with a photocatalytic coating, which neutralizes harmful components of exhaust fumes and smog.
The paint was created under the supervision of Sandomierz’s conservation officer as a result of NSG Group’s cooperation with the Sandomierz City Hall and its municipal and housing enterprise.
NSG officials say the mural’s size, which covers 861 feet, benefits Sandomierz residents because the more photocatalytic paint supplied, the more pollution is neutralized. Photocatalytic paint offers self-cleaning properties via breaking down and decomposing dirt, organic pollutants and other contaminants. It can also purify the air, reduce microbial growth and does not rely on additional energy inputs.
The mural was painted by Wroclaw-based Donut Studio, which specializes in painting environmental murals.
