POLLUTION: Smog Free Tower.

25. August 2021 | via Studioroosegaarde.net

Rotterdam-based Studio Roosegaarde created the world's first smog vacuum cleaner. The SMOG FREE TOWER is a 7 meter tall aluminium tower using only 1170 watts of green electricity and a patented positive ionisation technology to produce smog free air in public spaces. The tower cleans up to 30,000 m3 per hour and provides a local solution for clean air such as in parks. The function of the SMOG FREE TOWER has been validated by the results compiled by the Eindhoven University of Technology.

The project comes with a souvenir: the SMOG FREE RING features a little cube with compressed smog particles. By sharing a SMOG FREE RING you donate 1000 m3 of clean air to the city. The SMOG FREE RING is in the permanent art collection of the National Museum Zurich and Stedelijk Amsterdam. Besides a smog eating billboard, Roosegaarde recently presented a SMOG FREE BICYCLE. The innovative bicycle inhales polluted air, cleans it, and releases clean air around the cyclist.
