These artificial trees could improve air quality in many cities

Strange trees have spread across this city in Mexico... This solution meant to improve air quality could soon be introduced to many other cities around the world.

    Love the idea especially for areas where there is no possibility for planting live trees!

    Wow! How does it inhale traffic noise which also is environmental pollution from land transport?

    This info is off of Biomitech’s website: Purification Capture capacity: 13, 140,000 m3 of air / annual Volume of purification: 975.2 kg / year Flow of air flow: 3,000 m3 / h Particle Capture PM 2.5 and 10: Filters up to 99.7% Equivalent to the breath of people per day: 2,850 people Equivalent to the release of O2 from young trees: 368 trees

    Nice idea, but poor reporting. There is no indication how effective they are at reducing pollution. No data at all. It seems doubtful they could make a big difference.

    This seems like a good idea, but wouldn’t it be better if we just stopped producing the pollutants in the first place ?!

    Well it is a good idea, but why not plant real trees instead?

    Start talking about the REAL cause of climate change = OVERPOPULATION and its effects! https://www.change.org/p/weltweite-geburtenregelungen-verbindlich-einf%C3%BChren-introduce-obligatory-world-wide-birth-controls

    Would be great if for each device sold today they would plant 100 trees in the areas of commercial deforestation to restore the beauty of our planet. It is a brilliant bandaid solution, but our global mindset needs a shift more than anything.

    And maybe stop cutting down all the forests? I would combine this with real trees.
