CSIRO and the University of Technology, Sydney, have developed a model house, Nanohouse, to show how new materials, products and processes – all arising from nanotechnology research – may be applied to our living environment.
Take the self-cleaning glass, which is now available as a commercial product, Pilkington Activ. It will be in action when the Nanohouse display tours the country later this year.
A film of titanium dioxide is applied to the glass. When ultraviolet light hits the photocatalytic substance, it produces a charge that will break down any organic particles in contact with it.
