Air Purification Tower Comes to Beijing
The world’s largest air purifier takes over China’s smoke. The Smoke Freedom Tower arrived in China in September and created clean bubbles in downtown parks, including Beijing and Rosgard. Please raise awareness of the dangers.
When artist Daan Roosegaarde visited Beijing in 2014, his inspiration came from something he had never seen before.
From his hotel room on the 32nd floor, his views on a large number of Chinese capitals were completely obscured by smoke.
“Everything’s gone,” Rosegard said.
Two years later, he was visiting China on the world’s largest air purifier.
Smoke Freedom Tower produces clean bubbles in city parks, and Rosgard hopes to raise awareness of the dangers of air pollution.
Rabbits also like beautiful air.
The tower has just been commissioned in Rotterdam, Rosgard’s home town, and its company Studio Roosegard is headquartered in Rotterdam.
It has had an amazing impact on the local environment.
“For some reason, the rabbit was particularly interested in the space around the tower. I don’t know why. Maybe they can feel the difference, “he said.
Using ion technology, the tower attracts small capture particles (PM2.5 and PM10) to capture and release clean air. Roosegaarde says it leaves about 75% of the clean air.
“Basically, it has a plastic balloon with static electricity, with static electricity, and it attracts hair when brushing by hand.”
Roosegaarde said that a seven-meter tall tower can purify about 30,000 cubic meters of air per hour. “It’s a small area.” Its power is only 1,400 watts.
Can these towers save lives?
The tower is scheduled to arrive in Beijing and China in September.
The trip is a collaboration between Studio Roosegaarde and the Ministry of Environmental Protection of China, which will determine China’s urban sites based on the results of a public vote.
After China, Roosegaarde plans to take the tower to all parts of the world – Mexico City and India are under consideration.
More than 80% of the urban population is exposed to air quality levels that exceed the World Health Organization limits, and as urban air quality declines, the risk of stroke, heart disease, lung cancer, asthma, and other diseases decreases. It rises.
