ST. PAUL, Minn., May 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Since the launch of the world's first smog-reducing shingle, Malarkey Roofing Products has provided the industry with enough roofing materials to protect more than 400,000 roofs. Because each roof has the smog-fighting capacity of two to three trees, that's the equivalent of over 1 million trees of smog-reducing power. 3M™ Smog-reducing Granules, integrated into Malarkey roofing shingles, remove smog gases from the air with the same effect as trees. Trees help to clean the air we breathe -- they absorb pollutant gases like nitrogen oxides, ozone and carbon monoxide. 3M Smog-reducing granules are designed with an integrated photocatalyst that reacts with UV light to transform the nitrogen oxides in smog into a plant-usable form of nitrogen.
