Nov 28th, 2016: Smog Sucker

Quote:
What sounded like a long shot attempt to literally suck some of the suffocating smog out of China’s sky is
actually working, according to updates on the Smog Free Project, which installed an air-vacuuming tower
in a Beijing square. Created by Studio Roosegaarde, the tower has been up for over 40 days with China’s
Ministry of Environmental Protection keeping track of the results. This week, they announced that the air
around the tower is 55 percent cleaner than before, scrubbing 30 million cubic meters of air – equal to the
volume of 10 Beijing National Stadiums.
Ministry of Environmental Protection? China?

Quote:
The Smog Free Tower made its debut during Beijing Design Week 2016, with Studio Roosegaarde announcing
plans to compress collected smog particles into ‘smog free’ jewelry as a tangible souvenir of the project.
Standing 23 feet (7 meters) tall, the tower is the world’s largest air purifier, capable of capturing and collecting
more than 75% of the pm2.5 and pm10 airborne smog particles and emitting a circular zone of clean air.
Oh boy, jewelry of smog.

Is it actively sucking air like those little in-home air purifiers do? Or is it just letting air pass through it naturally?

Here is the video, it don't say much but here it is.

This being China and all I would suspect a couple of huge diesel generators just out of sight.

Bwahahha! Good one jbolty. Almost worth the 8 YEAR post drought.

Old Jbolty is a regular ol' chatterbox, I see.

Love this, one of those ideas so crazy that "might work."

There's another one...
