It is the brainchild of artist / designer Professor Helen Storey and chemist
Professor Tony Ryan,
people from very different worlds whose minds have come together over recent years in highly successful
Due to his expertise in the field of air quality, Professor Frank Kelly
is acting as Project Advisor,
specifically he is helping to shape how the project is taken forward through activities across the UK.
"Catalytic Clothing is an innovative biomedical and environmental project that spans the art/science domain.
The possibility that innovative pollution degrading materials can be incorporated into the fabric of our
cities and even our clothes to help provide a solution to urban air pollution is simply fantastic."
Professor Frank Kelly, King's College London
