'Smog Free Tower' Heads To Poland To Vacuum Air Pollution

By

Daan Roosegaarde is bringing the Smog Free Tower to Krakow, Poland, in February. The 23-foot tall structure is described as a smog vacuum cleaner that first appeared in Rotterdam and later China to fix their urban areas struggling with air pollution. The tower is a part of a portfolio of Smog Free Projects that the Dutch artist has been working on.

Smog Free Tower will be showcased at Park Jordana in Krakow. The city was selected to host the aluminum structure as they’re one of the leaders in fighting their own air pollution in recent years. It cleans just over 39,000 cubic yards per hour and picks up two common air pollutants, PM2.5 and PM10, to control smog over its surroundings.
