the world's first 'smog vacuum cleaner' can suck up air pollution and turn it into jewellery - air purifier machine for home
The air we breathe is not as clean as before.
In many cases, the situation is getting worse and worse. On high-
In the smog days of Krakow, Poland, the city's air pollution may reach six times the level of safety.
According to the American Lung Association, about four out of ten people in the United States live in counties with unhealthy levels of ozone or particulate pollution.
To help clean the air, Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde designed a 23-foot-
Tall air purifier called smog
Free Tower in 2015.
Now, he is installing a tower in Jordana Park in Krakow, where it will stay from February 16-4 to 15. The tower-
Like the device absorbs smoke from the top and then through its six-sided vents.
According to Roosegaarde, it can clean more than 30,000 cubic meters of air per hour, using no more electricity than the boiler.
His studio, Roosegaard, called the tower the first "smoke cleaner" in the world ".
"The project was funded on Kickstarter and took about three years to do research and development, but Roosegaarde finally showed off his large machines in Rotterdam in September 2015.
In 2016, Roosegaarde's team, in collaboration with China's Ministry of Environmental Protection, visited the giant air purifier in four Chinese cities to help clean up the air.
According to Roosegaarde's website, the air purifier is specially designed for public park use as a solution for local air quality, so when it is traveling around the country, it is likely to be found in the public park.
Roosegaarde described in more detail how the tower works on the project's Kickstarter page: "By charging the smog-free tower with a small positive current, the electrode will be in the air
These ions are attached to tiny dust particles.
Surface with negative electricity
Then attract positive ions with fine dust particles.
It usually hurts our fine dust to collect and store in the tower with ions.
This technology successfully captured the super
Fine smoke particles that the conventional filtration system cannot do.
"Not only can air purifiers clean up smoke, they can also be used to make fine jewelry.
The fine carbon particles collected by the tower can be condensed into tiny "gems" and can be embedded in jewelry such as rings and cufflinks.
Each small stone is equivalent to 1,000 m³ of the air.
Rose's goal is to eventually bring his tower to Mexico City, Paris and Los Angeles.
