German Scientists at Blucher Technologies have created a “breathable, glass fiber/polyester nonwoven paper-like covering” with absorbent properties that can clear common indoor air pollutants like PCB, PCP, pesticides, and radon.
Called Saratech Permasorb, the new hi-tech material is made of thousands of small spheres build to resemble the lungs, that are able to absorb pollutants both from the wall and from the home inside and can be built in a lot of materials from textiles to wallpaper, making the lining of the product.
So now you get an extra help that together with the 3 plants that you currently use to purify the air your family breaths.
