Eco glass cleans itself with Sun: "A revolutionary kind of glass that needs little cleaning could mean soap and chamois are binned for good.  The Pilkington Activ glass has a special nano-scale - extremely thin - coating of microcrystalline titanium oxide which reacts to daylight.  This reaction breaks down filth on the glass, with no need for detergent. When water hits it, a hydrophilic effect is created, so water and dirt slide off. ..

Dr Sanderson said it could potentially be used to break down E. coli or other bacterial infections on surfaces. It could also be used to naturally decompose pollutants in the air, like formaldehyde, and ground-level ozone. "
