CHINA BEIJING SMOG FREE TOWER

People look at the world's largest air purifier "Smog Free Tower" at the Beijing 798 Art Zone in the Dazhanzi Art District in Beijing, China, 20 October 2016. As smog season starts to hit China, Studio Roosegaarde, a design team led by award-winning Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde, unveiled their pollution-fighting Smog Free Tower in Beijing. According to the press release, at 7 meters in height, the Smog Free Tower is the largest air purifier in the world, and it's mobile! Meaning that it can help to clean up other cities if it ever runs out of smog to eat in Beijing. Media reported that the tower sucks in 75% of the particles in the nearby air that are dangerous to humans, and then spits back out clean air into the surrounding space. So, where do all those captured smog particles go? Well, the tower compresses the carbon particles, which are then turned into diamond cubes to adorn Smog Free Rings, Cubes and Cufflinks. By buying one ring, consumers are effectively donating 1,000 cubic meters of clean air to the city. The money from the jewelry will be funneled back into developing and building more towers.(Imaginechina via AP Images)
