To solve the problem of air pollution, in China, researchers are testing a 100-meter cleansing tower. For several months of work, it reduced pollution by 15%.
As is known, in recent decades, stimulating the growth of industrialization and ignoring the question of the preservation of environmental cleanliness, China has systematically destroyed its ecology. As a result, in January 2017 in the Middle Kingdom was announced the plight and the "red" smog in major cities.
Realizing the danger of the situation, in the same year, China launched several national projects to combat air pollution. Closed 40% of coal plants and many plants and factories that do not meet emission standards. Has introduced a number of programs to support manufacturers and users of electric vehicles. And now it is testing an unusual device - a 100-meter tower called Xian smog tower, which purifies the air.
The world's largest tower Xian smog tower for air purification
It was placed in Shaanxi Province and for 3 months of operation it showed impressive results - on an area of 10 km2 by 15% reduced the level of pollution by "digesting" and cleaning about 10 million m3 of air daily.
The operating principle of this cleaning tower is not simple. Sucking the air into itself, it "gives" it to the thermal stations located nearby. There the dirty air is heated by electricity generated from solar energy. After that, hot air is fed back to the tower, where it passes 5 levels of purification, and then is thrown back into space.

This tower is a test installation, and full results of its effectiveness will be announced in March 2018. However, the test numbers seem to demonstrate its high productivity.
If the performance of the cleaning tower is good, China intends to build several similar devices throughout the country. At the same time, their size will be increased - in places the height of such towers will reach 500 m, and the diameter - 200 m. One such tower will be able to clean the air of a small city
