A Curtain That Can Purify Air

IKEA is set to launch an air-purifying curtain coated with a mineral-based surface that breaks down common pollutants. The surface of the curtain is treated with a photocatalyst mineral that causes air pollution to break down when light shines through it, allowing users to purify the air in their own homes. The technology works in a similar way to photosynthesis, the natural process that plants and some other organisms use to convert carbon dioxide and water into food, using light.
