Air Purifying Wallpaper

High-tech wallpaper absorbs harmful chemicals from the air.

Some green tech is so next-level that it’s hard to believe. Like wallpaper that cleans the air. Yep, you read right. Inhabitat reports Bluecher Technologies has just produced a “breathable, glass fiber/polyester non-woven paper-like covering” with absorbants that capture harmful chemicals like PCBs, PCP, pesticides, and radon.

The wallpaper, called Saratech Permasorb, might be the perfect fit for older buildings that were built before people knew about deadly chemicals in building materials. It uses a network of tiny black balls that absorb and store the contaminants in their pores. Now that old Victorian home may actually be livable!
