The aim of FOTOAir Unit is the development of knowledge, processes and technologies capable of eliminate air pollutants in a environmentally friendly and efficient way. Solar and artificial low cost light are used as irradiation sources:

 

  1. Synthesis of novel photocatalysts.
  2. Design of new photoreactors based on UV-A lamps for indoor air decontamination.
  3. Characterization and photocatalytic treatment of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Inorganic (H2S, NOx) in outdoor air.
  4. Characterization and photocatalytic treatment of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), bacteria and fungi in indoor air.
