Air pollution is a real bummer and causes a lot of problems for our planet. Even if we lower the output of CO2 in the air, we still need to do something with the pollution we already have The Direct Air Capture plant turns all that nasty stuff into plant fertilizer.
These plants pull the air through a filter system, which cleans the toxins from it and delivers cleaner air out the other side. Every few hours, the filters are changed and the dirty ones can be used in a local greenhouse to grow veggies. The extra CO2 gives them a growing boost.
Of course, this innovation will only take care of a fraction of the pollution that the world is faced with and is not a substitution for more long-term methods of reducing emissions. In fact, although each factory can remove 900 metric tonnes of CO2, this is only a small, small amount of pollution, especially compared to what we produce in currently.
