Air Cleaning Tree..pods?

26 Mar

One of the problems faced by different countries is the air quality, especially in cities. Carbon dioxide exhausts from industrial factories, cars, even in household cooking, contribute to the greenhouse effect Actually, if carbon dioxide is released in reasonable quantities, trees and plants can serve as filters which remove some of it from the atmosphere. But then this is not the case. As a solution to this problem, in Boston, treepods are being used to remove excess carbon dioxide from the air.

The treepods use an alkaline resin that reacts with air and removes the carbon dioxide it contains. Interesting isn’t it. Aside from cleaning the air, treepods can also serve as decorations. Lighting up different streets during the night.
