3 Awesome diamonds created in the process
These awesome structures suck up filth and pollution. The smog sucked up inside is used to create smog free diamond rings. The smog collected in the tower is converted into carbon and used to create diamonds. Thus purchasing a smog free diamond ring means contributing to 1000 cubic meters of clean air. Many couples have even ordered rings and using them as jewelry and engagement or wedding rings.

He says “over 80 percent of people dwelling in urban places are exposed to air-quality levels that exceed World Health Organization limits.”
Each Chinese smog free tower is 23 feet tall and is also the world’s largest air purifier. A single tower uses the power equivalent to a home water boiler and cleans 30,000 cubic meters of air enough to clear pollution form a standard size football stadium. 25 of these towers will be placed in Beijing’s national park. Talks are on for use of similar towers in countries like India and china.
