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

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 .

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.
