Abstract

This study investigates the air pollutant removal efficiency of photocatalytic concrete with incorporated waste glass. Concrete samples are prepared with two different TiO2 photocatalysts applied at different dosages. Subsequently, the photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) degradation efficiency of air pollutant is tested and compared between the reference concrete samples with normal aggregates and samples with waste glass particles. The obtained results indicate that the utilization of glass as concrete aggregate can enhance the PCO efficiency of concrete. The highest PCO efficiency improvement by glass particles application reached over 52% compared to the reference sample.
