The Problem: Unveiling Urban Air Pollution

Urbanisation has brought unparalleled opportunities, yet it has also unleashed unprecedented challenges. Air pollution, particularly in the world's most densely populated cities, poses a severe threat to public health and the environment. NOx and VOCs, emitted by various industrial processes and vehicular activities, contribute significantly to the deterioration of air quality.


At this year’s UN Climate Change Conference (COP28) our team experienced first hand the positive interest and coming together of clean air advocates and those joining the fight against air pollution. It was also fantastic to learn of the new Breathe Cities that will now join London and Warsaw with a shared objective to unite for a reduction of air pollution by 30% by 2030.

Clean Air by Resysten: A Revolution Alongside the UN's Sustainable Development Goals

Alongside policy, Clean Air, with its advanced nano-coating technology, emerges as a powerful intervention in the battle against urban air pollution. By neutralizing NOx and harmful VOCs, it not only addresses immediate health concerns but also helps stakeholders align with key SDGs, and by doing so emphasising their commitment to sustainable development.

How Clean Air Aligns with SDGs:


  1. SDG 3: Good Health and Well-being: Clean Air significantly contributes to this goal by improving air quality, reducing respiratory illnesses, and promoting overall well-being among urban populations. In practical terms a 9sqm surface coated with Clean Air will neutralise the NOx created by an average vehicle for a whole year!

  2. SDG 9: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure: As a nano-technological innovation, Clean Air showcases how advancements in science can revolutionise the way business and whole industries approach environmental challenges. Clean Air is an easy and highly cost effective intervention on air pollution.

  3. SDG 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities: The product's application in the world's most polluted cities directly supports creating more sustainable and livable urban environments and as we have seen at COP28 UAE further aligns to new clean air targets.
