It is hard to believe, but smog is soaked up by this new paint, which was first made available in Europe last March. Ecopaint, developed by Millenium Chemicals of England, collects the nitrogen oxides in polluted air when applied to a building's exterior. Then, with the ultraviolet radiation of the sun, the noxious pollutants are converted to harmless nitric acid, which is washed away by rain...

The paint helps to remove pollutants from the atmosphere that contribute to respiratory problems and smog. While the paint is naturally clear, it can be pigmented. It is currently available in white. (Via Transmaterial) -Regina
