Copenhagen's AIR Lab wants to suck pollution out of the air and scrub it clean

University of Copenhagen’s AIR Lab hopes to infuse air pollution-laden cities with pockets of fresh, breathable air. The team discovered a process that is similar to the Earth’s own called the Gas Phase Advanced Oxidation method (GPAO), and it could be used to remove pollution from the air .
