Boysen KNOxOUT, the world’s first air cleaning paint is now available in the market. It boasts of its ability to be an arm to combat nitrogen oxides in the air we breathe.


Metro Manila is considered as the 4th most polluted city in the entire world. Aside from carbon monoxide, Oxides of Nitrogen or Nox, is one of the pollutants in the air we breathe. NOx, or nitrogen oxides, are harmful gases mostly generated from motor vehicle emissions. Trial data indicate that NOx levels in the vicinity of the Guadalupe MRT Station are at times over 200 micrograms per cubic meter — a figure that’s more than 5 times that of the World Health Organization (WHO) recommendation of 40 micrograms per cubic meter.

The Guadalupe MRT station as well as the embankment wall opposite the station along EDSA of over 6,200 sq. meters of area was painted with 740 liters Boysen KNOxOUT . Results of the trial indicate that World’s largest air cleaning Boysen KNOxOUT lowerered air pollution .

It takes about 20,000 breaths a day for a person to live. I spent at least 10 hours a day outside our home, breathing the polluted air of Metro manila, Our home is about 150 meters away from EDSA Monumeto. I Passed by the Guadalupe MRT Station at least thrice a week. That a lot of Nox inside of my lungs and body.

Surely Boysen® KNOxOUT®, offers the relief of that as an air pollution solution in a can. How does it work? KNOxOUT looks like an ordinary water based paint, it has a special ingredient – air cleaning titanium dioxide (TiO2), often referred to as a photocatalyst. When activated by light, it speeds up a chemical reaction that turns ordinary water vapor into free radicals that attack NOx and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), the two components of smog; and transform them into harmless substances.

It’s the 10th anniversary of the REPUBLIC ACT No. 8749 AN ACT PROVIDING FOR A COMPREHENSIVE AIR POLLUTION or the Clean Air Act law. The eleventh Congress passed it into law in 1999. The law enforces clean air standards for an improvement in human health and longer life spans


To raise awareness about an alternative way to do our part for the environment, the One Wall One World Campaign is launched. Let us paint the walls around our neighborhood, to help protect our community. If everyone in every community could paint one wall, we can help protect our town, our city and our world. This is the advocacy of “One wall, One world”

Good day!

As far as I know, It is already a fact that Japan was first to use the TiO2 technology far before the Boysen’s kNox out concept was released. And by this,I am wondering , why was this valuable info never been mentioned in the commercials and news?
