CityU researcher develops novel self-cleaning technology for delicate fibres

A novel technology developed by Dr Walid Daoud, Assistant Professor in the School of Energy and Environment at City University of Hong Kong (CityU), and his team enables cashmere fibres to clean themselves with nano-sized photocatalysts.

The research team has also developed testing platforms and standard protocols for measuring the performance and health impact of the self-cleaning nanoparticles coatings on human health.
