Manchester-based Aspira Aerial Applications Ltd, has received an Innovate UK Grant of £100,000 for its project aimed at tackling air pollution by applying a specialist Nano Titanium coating to building facia. This will turn urban landscapes into air purifiers.
Aspira is an innovative drone technology company, providing equipment and know-how to facilitate the treatment of tall buildings and inaccessible structures with a range of coatings to significantly improve their environmental credentials.
Aspira aims to revolutionise the way air pollution in tackled in towns and cities. Treating 5000m2 of surface typically nullifies the NOx and SOx of 450 Euro 6 diesel cars per annum. Whilst the technology of the coating is not new, (it works on a similar principle to a catalytic converter) the obstacle to date has been the accessibility of existing structures to apply this safely, quickly and effectively. Aspira’s proprietary drone technology overcomes this challenge.#
