Smog Free Project China

The Smog Free Project is an experience of a clean future and serves as an inspiration for citizens, governments, NGOs, pro-bicycle campaigns and the clean-tech industry to become part of the solution, working together to make cities smog free.

The highly anticipated Smog Free Project supported by the Chinese Ministry of Environmental Protection opened in China on the 29th of September 2016 at the creative heart of Beijing 751 D.Park, marking the start of its grand China tour.

The Smog Free Project, created by Dutch artist and innovator Daan Roosegaarde and his team of designers and experts, consists of the Smog Free Tower and Smog Free Jewellery offering a unique sensual experience of a clean future. Daan Roosegaarde and his team have been developing the project at Studio Roosegaarde since 2013, after its successful pilot in Rotterdam the project is now starting a tour across the globe.

The 7 meters high Smog Free Tower is the largest air purifier in the world which creates a bubble of clean air enabling citizens to experience clean air for free. The Smog Free Tower cleans 30.000m3 per hour via patented ozone-free ion technology and uses a small amount of green electricity. The Smog Free Tower captures and collects more than 75% of the PM2.5 and PM10 airborne smog particles and releases clean air around the tower with a 360-degree coverage creating an almost circular zone of clean air in its surrounding.

The Smog Free Jewellery is a tangible souvenir of the Smog free Project. The Smog Free Ring and Smog Free Cufflinks are made from compressed smog particles collected from the Smog Free Tower. By sharing a Smog Free Ring, you donate 1000m3 of clean air.

The Smog Free Project is inspired by Roosegaarde’s numerous travels in China and particularly by a visit to Beijing in 2013 when he could not look up out of his hotel room and children were kept indoors due to the severity of the smog. More than 80% of people in urban areas are exposed to air quality levels that exceed World Health Organization limits. The Smog Free Project is a part of Roosegaarde’s larger oeuvre ‘Landscapes of the Future’ which connects people, technology and space to improve the quality of daily life in urban environments.
