Pollution-eating clothes award

Have your say

SHEFFIELD University’s revolutionary project to develop clothes which will suck in air pollution has won a top award.

The Catalytic Clothing scheme has been crowned joint winner of the sustainability category in the Condé Nast Traveller Innovation and Design Awards 2012.

Project leaders Professor Tony Ryan, Pro-Vice Chancellor of Science at the university, and Professor Helen Storey, from London College of Fashion, received the prestigious award which was voted for by the public.

Professor Ryan said: “We’d like to thank all of the people that voted for us and helped us to win this fantastic accolade.”

The first clothes could go on sale next year.
