One of the biggest problem of 21st century is pollution,especially air pollution,this pollution usually leads to the death of 3 million people every year,according to study.CHINA,being one of the worlds’s fastest growing economies,also faces the same problem and china has the deadliest air,according to World Health Organization(WHO).China has come up to a solution of this problem.The world’s largest air purifier arrives to clean up the smog in China.
The giant pineapple-like air purifier in Beijing has failed a series of air-cleaning tests, but China’s still keeping it.In an attempt to clean up the smog and pollution in China, as well as highlight the dangers of air pollution, the Smog Free Tower has arrived in Beijing.This tower not only just cleans the air but also uses the smog in making of jewelry. The inspiration came from how diamonds are made in nature by compressed carbon. The tower collects compressed smog particles, which are partially made of carbon.It’s the largest smog vacuum cleaner in the world.
Here’s how it works:
Using ion technology, the tower attracts and sucks in small pollution particles by sending positive ions into the air. Once inside the tower, these particles attach themselves to a grounded, negatively charged surface — what’s called a counter electrode.The tower cleans 30,000 cubic meters of air an hour.The process improves surrounding air quality by 75 percent.When the world’s tallest tower is built in Wuhan, China, it will also be one of the most environmentally friendly skyscrapers anywhere. The building, paired with another slightly shorter tower, goes beyond the usual sustainable design features to try to help restore the surrounding environment.
The seven-metre-high Smog Free Tower is the largest air purifier in the world. It creates a bubble of clean air giving citizens “clean air for free”.The technology is similar to that used in hospitals. “In a few hours it will clean (air) in a small space; if you leave it on for a couple of days it cleans a small neighbourhood”.This can also be considered as the most environmentally friendly skyscrapers anywhere.This is a great step towards the betterment of countries which in turn helps in betterment of the world.
