London to deal with air pollution with magic fabric conditioner

The city of London could begin to deal with its air pollution problem within two years according to our sources. The air pollution problem could be combated the help of a next generation fabric conditioner, which eats away toxic asthma causing nitrogen dioxide.

The new liquid is known as CatClo and is developed by the London College of Fashion and the University of Sheffield and is added to clothes like a regular conditioner. When treated clothes are worn outdoors they help clean the air around the person. The trick is, the liquid contains titanium dioxide which reacts with nitrogen dioxide in a way that collects the pollutant harmlessly. Thus clothes could be used as catalytic surfaces to purify the air.
