Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde and his team of experts have created the world's largest smog vacuum cleaner. The Smog Free Tower uses patented ion technology to produce smog-free bubbles of public space, allowing people to breathe and experience clean air for free.
Creating a tangible souvenir, Roosegaarde designed Smog Free Rings, Smog Free Cubes and Smog Free Cufflinks of compressed smog particles. By sharing Smog Free Jewellery, you donate 1000m3 of clean air to the city. Now available exclusively via firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Smog Free Project is not only intended to be a final local solution, but also a sensory experience of a clean future. Along with governments, NGOs and the clean-tech industry, people can become here part of the solution instead of the problem.
2014-2018. The first 7-meter high Smog Free Tower equipped with environment-friendly and patented ozon free ion technology is now open for public at Vierhavensstraat 52 in Rotterdam NL, and will travel around the world. The first Smog Free Tower cleans 30.000m3 per hour without ozon, runs on green wind energy and uses no more electricity than a waterboiler (1400 watts). Smog Free Jewellery specifications available on request.
With your support we already managed to successfully launch the first Smog Free Tower in Rotterdam. With the first tower built, we are now able to illustrate and demonstrate the functioning of the Tower towards other interested parties and cities.
Our current focus is on bringing the Tower to as many places as we can. We are involved in negotiations in Mumbai, Paris and Kazakhstan and in contact with parties in China, Japan, Malaysia, Korea, Vietnam, Pakistan, the Philippines and Sri Lanka. As soon as we are able to confirm our next locations with certainty, you are the first ones to know! Thank you for all your requests and suggestions of where the Tower should travel next, we are trying to take them all into account. Here are some of the things you shared with us:
Now that the first Tower is activated and Smog is continously being extracted, we are able to measure the impact of the Tower on its direct environment. To do so, we are using professional RIVM (Rijksinstituut voor volksgezondheid en milieu / institution of public health and environment) technology and measuring over a longer period of time.
We collect the gathered Smog particles from the Tower once a week and are continuously creating all the Smog Free Cubes, Rings and Cufflinks.
