Half Day Seminar On
” Improving Indoor Air Quality with nano technology titanium oxide (TiO2) with special address on green buildings ”

SYNOPSIS
The pollutants of indoor air quality (IAQ) such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), odour, bacteria & microbial particles (fungus & mold) were long know to be a health hazard in modern “sick buildings”. The normal solution is to provide enhanced ventilation and active humidity control i.e. dilution with sufficient amount of fresh air at appropriate humidity. This works well but for rectification of existing buildings that already has such IAQ problem can take a long time and at the expense of occupants’ comfort & health during this duration. For new building, good pre-occupancy IAQ is essential.
Recently, a new technology bases on nano size titanium oxide (TiO2) has emerged as an innovative mean to improve IAQ, in addition to the enhanced ventilation & humidity control. It was discovered in numerous research that this material is able to effectively breakdown organic compounds and microbial particles with the present of visible light. However, TiO2 will not be consumed in the process as it acts purely as a catalyst and will continuously to perform its function throughout the life of building. TiO2 can be applied as a thin coating to building material and its transparent characteristic has no effect to appearance of base material. TiO2 has been widely & successfully used in automobile industry, whereby a quick solution is almost essential for purchaser of a second car that full of undesirable odours and pollutants or a new car with too much out gassing from newly fit-out material. It is affordable now in bringing TiO2 the innovative & miraculous material to building industry. In this seminar, various speakers (some from overseas) will share their research & application result of TiO2 .

VARIOUS SPEAKERS:
Dr Chia Lin Sien, Director, nanoYo Group Pte Ltd, will briefly describe the nano technology and amazing effect of TiO2 as catalyst.

Assoc. Professor Srimala Sreekantan, University Sains Malaysia, will be talking about, “USM insights on Multi-functional application of TiO2 nanotube arrays: A way forward for green environment”

Takamatsu Masayuki, Director, nanoYo Group Pte Ltd, FOUNDER OF NANOYO will address various types of TiO2, performance test & application of TiO2 to Susa Hospital in Wakayama City, Japan

Professor Dr. Wimolsiri Porntaveewat, King Mongkut University, Thailand will speak on TiO2 is a FDA approved material, its health, safety & toxicity aspect & experiments on foodstuffs.

Dr. Chia lin sien Director, nanoYo Group Pte Ltd &
Ir. Soong Peng Soon, Commissioning Specialist of Green Buildings will describe application of TiO2 in hotels & other local green building projects.

SmartCoat, an innovative way to eliminate the invisible enemies..

20110419-062945.jpg

Have You encountered any invisible enemies? Im sure you do… Im not talking about ghosts here…. Im talking about bacteria, mold/fungus, bad odor, virus, and other contaminants which are harmful to our lives… Please take some time to go through what i have to say if you are aware that your children playing with the invisible enemies…

A NEW TECHNOLOGY TO BUST OUR INVISIBLE ENEMIES..

20110421-032244.jpg

The warm and humid tropical climate in Malaysia and the rest of the Southeast Asian region creates prime breeding ground for harmful bacterial, yeast and viral organisms. This can aggravate allergies of the sinus, skin and eyes, as well as particularly increase the risk of contagious air-borne diseases such as tuberculosis, SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) and recently, the H1N1 pandemic. In the recent years, consumers have been flooded with an influx of air purifier products – ranging from compact air ionizers to air-conditioners which kill harmful organisms in the air. Well-intended as they are created to be, these products are limited to their areas of application and require hardware installation as well as periodical maintenance. But with the ARC FLASH’s NANOYO Nanotech Photo-catalyst, consumers here can now enjoy the high quality clean air and environmental protection which have been enjoyed by residents in Japan, USA, Taiwan and Hong Kong. NANOYO photo-catalytic is a colorless liquid coating with nano-sized titanium dioxide (TiO2) as its main ingredient. As a semi-conducting photo-catalyst, TiO2 lowers the chemical activation energy to enhance chemical reaction or accelerate the reaction rate under photo-irradiation. However, TiO2 does not decompose or degrade from any resulting chemical reaction due to photo-irradiation. NANOYO is as innovative as it is convenient without requiring hardware installation and periodical maintenance. Application is easy – spraying the liquid paint onto the intended surfaces using the special electrostatic sprayer. Suitable applications for NANOYO are especially the interiors of residences, offices, healthcare institutions and automobiles.

We adopt the best application tool using the ELECTROSTATIC Spraying Technology, making nanoyo to be the first and only who use this technology for nano tio2 application in the world.

HOW IT WORK?

1) we apply nanoyo by directly spraying the product onto surfaces with our electrostatic sprayer

2) The photocatalyst effect will oxidize anything that is organic that comes into contact with nanoYo’s surfaces.
Nanoyo oxidizes the microbes by turning them into h2o and co2. This process will repeatedly happens for 2 years or more.

Locally, NANOYO has been applied in many industries over the 5 years of entry in the Malaysian market. They have been applied in the Education industries, Hospitals, Hotels and Resorts, Offices, Residential as well as private automotives. NANOYO has been protecting these clienteles from their invisible enemies, ever since.

Suitable surfaces within buildings to apply NANOYO would be ceilings and walls, as with car seats, dashboards and side panels in a car surfaces. When TiO2 is exposed to UV radiation from sunlight or any other visible light sources, this maximizes the oxidization capabilities of TiO2 to degrade the harmful micro-organisms in a process similar to photosynthesis, call PHOTOCATALYST. So happened bacteria, virus, mold/fungus and even odor are all organic in nature. This thus produces purified air which is 99.97% bacteria-free, virus-free, mold/fungus-free and also odor-free.

A CASE STUDY: http://josbrouwers.bwk.tue.nl/publications/Conference44.pdf
Here is a study done in University of Twente, Netherlands, showing the effectiveness of photocatalyst oxidations against VOCs and other gasses in indoors.

Where nanoYo is suitable to be applied?

20110421-041811.jpg

NANOYO (photo catalyst) contain high level of Tio2 which has high chemistry stability and non-toxic characteristic. The process of light illumination is able to activate NANOYO to decompose microorganism and virus. It may avoid over using the medication disinfectant products which is possibly to cause the viral mutation. Besides its hassle-free application process, NANOYO is odorless and non-toxic, while being self-disinfectant, self-deodorizing and protecting the treated surfaces from stains after application during its effective treatment period. It does not contain medicinal substances so it will not cause antibody development and reduce the environmental pollution. This technology will enable a safer way for long term sterilization. NANOYO dries almost instantly after being applied onto designated surfaces and forms a nano film, filled with tio2. It is advised that the treated surfaces not be cleaned or affected in any way from interference of other chemical cleaning products for the first day time while the TiO2 is hardening on the treated areas. Base on the analysis report, NANOYO can remove unpleasant smell, eliminated harmful substances, prevent dirt collection, anti-fungal, anti-mold and most important is it will not release the deleterious substances TIO2 has been the top of the list in science studies around the world. With its ability to decompose not only microbes but also many gasses released from compounds be it naturally or industrially, this new concept may be one of the most effective way to protect us from harmful contaminants in the future.
