Abstract.The increasing population and massive use of vehicles caused the atmospheric air to be more polluted and its effect on human beings is increasing all over the world and hence the introduction of pollution controlling paver blocks can helps in absorbing the vehicles pollution. From this paver block the venture is being made to reduce the pollution using titanium oxide and other chemicals by photocatalytic method. The titanium dioxide absorbs pollutions by the reaction with UV radiation titanium dioxide power is applied in three different methods on the paver blocks in order to find the most effective pollution absorbing capacity of the paver blocks.
