Oxygena, by Gambarelli, is a floor tile designed to lessen the
pollution around your home. How does it do this? According to their
"It is the only tile to contain titanium dioxide, an invaluable element which, through a totally natural process, reacts to and eliminates polluting gases thus rendering them harmless. Oxygena is designed for outdoor applications (buildings, balconies, walkways, squares and public works) where it cleans the air of nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide produced by vehicle exhaust, central-heating systems and domestic cookers but it can also be laid indoors (bathrooms, kitchens and domestic environments)."
This is the mark of new technologies being implemented in the major Canadian and American cities to counter the pollution surrounding those areas. Although this could be very costly, to some people with lung and breathing problems this could be a major incentive in the future when looking for houses or apartments in the future. E.A.
