How Clean Air Produces Jewelry

Cleaner air has never been this rewarding. Well, let’s face it, clean air alone is its own reward - something everyone should try and make an effort and do their part. Daan Roosegaarde, a designer from Rotterdam, has taken this one large step farther by building the biggest air purifier the world has ever seen.

After 3 arduous years of research and development, Roosegaarde has achieved this momentous achievement, which by itself warrants hearty accolades - but wait, there’s more! Not only does this 23 foot air purifier clean more than 30,000 cubic meters of air each hour, it then condenses those fine particles of smog into gem stones, the likes of which can be used in various jewelry accessories!air purifier makes gem stones

About 2 years ago, the Dutch designer announced his fresh idea, originally planned for the notoriously smog ridden city of Beijing. Now, after years of hard work, Roosegaarde and his team have completed and unveiled the first prototype in Rotterdam, which will be making its way to Beijing, Paris and Mumbai, and possibly other cities (people are urged to suggest their own city in need of a massive air cleaner, using the project’s hashtag on Twitter).

Have Air Purifier, Will Travel

The smog free tower resides next to Daan Roosegaarde’s studio. The mayor of Rotterdam and its local government have supported this project with grant money.smog tower air purifier

Taking this humongous purifier on the road, on the other hand, is crowd funded by selling the by-product it formulates - jewelry. Just as cleaning the air should be a communal effort, in that same vein, the Roosegaarde studio has launched a Kickstarter campaign, where you can buy jewelry accessories made from tiny smog gems that could have even become diamonds by being compressed with extreme pressure.

Its a win-win situation, clean air and shiny accessories as a by product!

Does your city need the smog tower to pay it a visit? What are your thoughts and feelings about this momentous project?

I’d like to start a fund of some sort to get this in Salt Lake City area. Could you shoot me an email?

I’d be curious to know what the results are after they install something like this in a highly populated country that has a lot of smog and pollution.
Also, what kind of engagement rings this produces!
