New ‘smart paint’ could boost carbon reduction in London

A new paint could contribute to businesses’ sustainability in the capital, according to research.

Experts at the University College London (UCL) discovered that a biolime paint, created by Rachel Armstrong, could help to remove CO2 from the atmosphere, reports the New Scientist.

The “smart paint” reacts with carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, absorbing it and creating a biolime, which could boost insulation and make buildings more eco-friendly.

This latest eco-friendly revelation comes after Welsh firm Lomox told the Guardian that it had developed an ultra-efficient organic LED wallpaper that could replace traditional lighting in offices.

The LED wallpaper may even look more natural than traditional light bulb lighting, as well as being more sustainable.

Speaking to the newspaper, Carbon Trust director of innovations Mark Williamson said: “This technology has the potential to produce ultra-efficient lighting for a wide range of applications, tapping into a huge global market.”ADNFCR-2805-ID-19553443-ADNFCR
