Why is white colour so important in urban space?
Who came up with the idea that the asphalt was dark?
We will not answer this question today, but we will write that the dark colour (walls and roofs of buildings, asphalt on the streets) acts as a magnet for heat. It absorbs the sun's rays during the day and gives off the heat to the atmosphere at night. The result is that it can be up to 10 degrees C warmer in the city than on the outskirts. This is the so-called Urban Effect Canyon.
A And when it is hot, whoever can install air conditioners or use the existing ones is allowed to do so. To cool down offices, a public building or your own flat, we need to use huge amounts of energy, and those outside blow hot air into the atmosphere along with humidity.
Chinese research on the greenhouse effec confirms that the existence of giant heat islands leads to an increase of up to 30% in the global greenhouse effect.
Let us remember that
How to stop the development of heat islands?
The challenge for
the next three years
* white colour – here the albedo factor is 100%. (this is the ideal situation)
* pastel colours – albedo factor of 75%. (not bad either).
* black colour – 0%.
White and pastel colour quickly
becomes dirty. Yes, but no!
We beautify the city
and we clean the air
Other solutions in urban space that can lower the temperature in city centres
We encourage you to cooperate with us
Let us plant trees and/or paint the walls white. It works.
How much air
will we purify?
Our ally: ultra-fine titanium dioxide. Our opponents: smog and heat islands. So let’s get paint to say a firm ‘out’ to heat islands and air pollution in city centres.
