It’s nice living in a city where we dare to dream about the unknown and find support to make dreams come true. For those who read my articles, you may know that I like writing about new initiatives in town that provoke your imagination as it reflects the energy of a city that’s in a constant mode of change.
In 2015, me and my wooll-e® partners-in-crime, supported The Smog Free Project. Developed by Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde in collaboration with expert partners ENS, Studio Roosegaarde and professor Ursem. We backed their crowd-funding campaign for a Smog Free Tower that isn’t only intended to be a final local solution for clean parks, but also a sensory experience of a clean future :).
The first 7-meter high Smog Free Tower is equipped with environmentally friendly and patented ozone free ion technology. It cleans 30,000m3 per hour – removing ultra-fine smog particles and pumping out clean air. The smog is sucked in through its top, then the purified air is released through vents on the six sides.
