The Smog Free Tower produces smog-free bubbles of public space, allowing people to breathe and experience clean air. The first 7-meter high Smog Free Tower equipped with energy-friendly and patented ion technology will be realised on 4th September 2015 in Rotterdam, NL and will then travel around the world.

The technique used for the Smog Free Tower thus far has only been used on a small scale (in hospitals etc.) and will be applied now for the first time in public space cleaning 30.000m3 per hour and running on green energy.

The Smog Free Project is not only intended to be a final solution, but also a sensual experience of a clean future. Along with governments, NGOs and the clean-tech industry, people become part of the solution instead of the problem.

As a tangible souvenir of this Smart City, Roosegaarde creates jewellery from the residue of the collected smog. Smog consists of carbon which is compressed into high-end jewellery such as the Smog Free Ring or the Smog Free Cufflinks. Each piece of jewellery contributes to the purifying of 1000 cubic meters of polluted air.

These are now available on Kickstarter.
