RGVA has launched its new sustainable Traxx banner solution. In partnership with Clean Air by Resysten and Hollywood Monster the banner has a coating that can ‘clean’ pollutants from the air.
Mike Freely, director of Clean Air, said: “We have been working as part of a joint venture with Resysten, the company that created the original advanced antimicrobial surface coating. Together, we have developed that technology over a number of years into an atmospheric pollutant remover.
“The premise of the system is simple: the combination of a trailer’s large surface area and the distances it travels gives the Clean Air coating plenty of opportunities to work its magic. Breaking down airborne pollutants simply by passing through them, we’re able to help businesses as they strive to cut emissions and improve sustainability.”
The spray-on coating is activated by sunlight and targets nitrous oxides (NOx) in the air. The main ingredient is titanium dioxide (TiO2) which breaks down NOx particles into nitrogen, oxygen and nitrates. The collaborative claims one trailer fitted with the Traxx banner sustainable coating can negate the impact of 2,555 average vehicle journeys per year.
The system has been awarded an ISO 22197-1 accreditation. It can break up 222mg per m² of NOx a day and 64m² of banners on a 13.6m trailer can ‘clean’ approximately 5.2kg of NOx a year.
Kieran McCabe, managing director of RGVA, said: “Though the science behind the Clean Air product is well established, we’ve been working on perfecting it for the transport industry for some time. Through RGVA and Hollywood Monster’s graphics expertise, we’re now able to provide fleet operators with a movable marketing and promotional tool that also delivers a workable sustainability solution – it’s a unique combination that we’re excited to showcase to our customers.”
Simon McKenzie, chief executive officer for Hollywood Monster, said: “This product has the ability to make a big impact at a negligible cost. With looming net zero deadlines, we want to remove the barriers for companies trying to find ways to reduce their day-to-day environmental impact.”
