26 A. Beeldens et al. 1 Feature of Photocatalytic Blocks A photocatalytic block is an interlocking block or pavement (paving) block that contains titanium dioxide in its top surface. It is chiefly used for road pavements. The photocatalytic blocks can purify air using light energy. The atmospheric NOx pollution due to exhaust gases from automobiles has been a serious problem in urban areas. The photocatalytic block pavement is one of the measures for NOx pollution control. It was developed by Mitsubishi Materials Corporation  with the aim of purifying the environment using solar energy in Japan in 1996.
