Photocatalysis Technology, Cleaner Buildings & A Cleaner Environment

Photocatalysis Technology, Cleaner Buildings & A Cleaner Environment

to take this course

In this one hour course, the design professional will gain an understanding of photocatalysis and how it works. We will discuss sustainability and the environmental benefits of photocatalytic technology. We will then evaluate how photocatalytic surfaces impact the maintenance, cleanliness, and overall life cycle of a building project, and how these surfaces lead to improved indoor environmental quality.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Discuss photocatalysis in terms of its makeup and technology
  2. Explain the purpose, performance, and sustainable benefits of photocatalytic surfaces
  3. Define “hydrophilic” and discuss the self-cleaning properties of photocatalytic surfaces
  4. Compare and contrast the antimicrobial properties of antimicrobial metals to photocatalytic hybrid surfaces
