Rotterdam is building a smog-eating tower to purify the air!

The tower has the capacity to clear away 123 million cubic feet of smog every day. If one tower has the power to clean that much air, just imagine what several towers could do. The company has launched a crowd-funding campaign that has swiftly gained traction as people demonstrate excitement to join a movement that could rid the skies of smog. Their Kickstarter campaign set sail on July 22 with a goal of $54,000 to build a prototype, and so far it’s right on track. The first smog-sucking tower will be unveiled in Rotterdam, Netherlands this coming September. After the studio completes the first tower in their home country, they hope to build smog towers in other countries, including China, Mexico and India.
