Writing on wall in graffiti battle

Abstract:
Melbourne company Nanokote which says it has worked with the CSIRO on nanotechnology - the control of matter on an atomic and molecular scale - believes it has the answer for local councils faced with soaring bills for cleaning up graffiti.

A recent report to Tweed Shire council said the direct cost of removing offensive graffiti each year was $25,000 and although the cost of treating non-offensive graffiti was absorbed into general maintenance, a rough estimate was a further $70,000 a year.

Nanokote claims cleaning up graffiti across Australia is $300 million every year and is passed on to the community through higher service costs, insurance premiums and council rates.
