Self-cleaning concrete:

Self-cleaning buildings and pollution-reducing roadways: These may sound like futuristic ideas, but they are realities of some of today’s concrete. Recently introduced formulations of cement are able to neutralize pollution. Harmful smog can be turned into harmless compounds and washed away. Anything made out of concrete is a potential application, because these cements are used in the same manner as regular portland cements. These products provide value through unique architectural and environmental performance capabilities.
