According to the World Health Organization (WHO), outdoor air pollution is one of the major challenges of the 21st century, and is attributed to around 3.7 million deaths globally (WHO, 2014). It is estimated that 92 % of the world’s population still lives in regions where air pollutants levels are higher than the WHO specified limits (WHO, 2016). While remaining the main environmental health hazard, air pollution also causes a variety of environmental effects such as acid rain, haze, eutrophication, ozone depletion, crop, forest and wildlife damage, and even more so – global climate change. For this reason, by advancing and integrating passive control remediation strategies, iSCAPE significantly contributes to tackling this challenge.
