The titanium dioxide reacts with pollutants in the air and oxidizes them in the fabric. The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, which has supported the project from the start, says that average wearers of clothes treated with CatCo can remove about 5 grams of nitrogen oxides from their air per day. That’s about equal to what an average car produces in a day. It’s aiming to make CatCo commercially within two years. I’ve told you about some cool high-tech clothes before, but I these may be the perfect fit
