Smog-Sucking Towers In China Begin Creating Jewelry Out of Polluting Particles | OilPrice.com

Smog-Sucking Towers In China Begin Creating Jewelry Out of Polluting Particles | OilPrice.com – The seven-meter tall towers constructed in The Netherlands have filtered 30 million cubic meters of air since they began work 41 days ago. The machines use the extracted smog particles to create commemorative rings, according to a report by Sputnik news. Studio Roosegaarde, the Dutch firm that created the towers, came up with the concept three years ago, when the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that 80 percent of the Chinese capital’s population had been exposed to air-quality levels hazardous to the public’s health. The Chinese Forum for Environmental Justice has challenged the effectiveness of the towers, disparaging them as “smog warning towers” as the “weight of the machine’s captured particulate matter per hour is less than that of a spoonful of salt.”
