    Smog Free Tower has been deployed for testing around Rotterdam. While it may not be a complete solution to urban air pollution, it can at least carve out breathable areas in key civic spaces like downtown squares and public parks.

    20-foot tower cleans 30,000 cubic meters of air per hour, running on about the same amount of electricity used by a water boiler (1,400 watts). Low-energy technology efficiently powers both the ionization process and on-board LEDs that light the structures up at night.

    Nice, but these seems to be much better solution:
