GREEN® – The fabric that clears the air
On this page you can read a little about the revolutionary fabric type, GREEN®, which we are now one of the first in the world to offer.
GREEN fabric cleans itself and the air around you.
4m² of GREEN fabric can clear the air of the equivalent of a car's air pollution for a year. It's also the equivalent of planting trees, so it's a truly a green solution. See the test results that confirm this further down the page ↓
There is a growing concern about air pollution among most of us. Especially in cities where pollution is more densely concentrated.
In response to this, GREEN® has been created. The first fabric that cleans the air through photocatalysis.
GREEN® is a better quality of life.
GREEN fabric is treated with a finish developed in collaboration with Pureti and NASA, among others, that continuously cleans the fabric and surrounding air using photocatalysis.
This breaks down pollutants such as NOx, SOx and VOCs. GREEN® is also self-cleaning and has a mold and mildew-reducing effect. So it saves you time, money, water, chemicals and energy. It's a bonus for both the environment and your well being.

How it works - Photocatalysis
GREEN is coated with titanium dioxide (TiO2), which is given photocatalytic abilities by sunlight. This results in the destruction of organic substances, such as grease and bacteria, that are found on the surface.
Pureti has won the iSCAPE project from the European Union to decontaminate European cities with photocatalytic technology. Recognized by Horizon 2020 as one of the ten projects that will shape the EU for the next sixty years.
The Pureti coating has undergone numerous tests and its capabilities are well documented.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films IST has conducted tests on the GREEN fabric and found a 55% reduction in nitrogen dioxide levels.
