Ben Rucka - How Shingles are Reducing Smog

Malarkey - Ben Rucka - How Shingles are Reducing Smog

 

S3:E59

Heidi J. Ellsworth visits with Ben Rucka, District Manager with Malarkey Roofing Products about the important trend of using roofing materials to battle smog.  All Malarkey shingles include 3M™ Smog-Reducing Granules. These granules, which blend inconspicuously into the shingle’s color, contain a photocatalytic coating which, when activated by the UV rays of the sun, creates the energy needed to begin the process of breaking down dangerous, inhalable gas (NO2) into a water-soluble nitrate salt solid (NO3), a plant usable form of nitrogen that washes away with rainwater as a mild fertilizer.  Ben and Heidi discuss the importance of the new science of roofing and how Malarkey shingles help actively reduce emission-based air pollution equivalent to planting 2 trees per roof.
