This air pollution-targeting structure was designed as part of the 'Smog Free Project.'
With thriving industries that have few environmental regulations placed upon them, cities around the world are producing high amounts of pollution and one of the consequences of that fact is the increased production of smog. This is particularly a problem in China and the issue is being targeted here with a vacuum tower. The tower was placed in Beijing square and was designed by 'Studio Roosegaarde.' After 40 days of it sucking up the smog in the air around it, China's Ministry of Environmental Protection announced that the air around the tower is 55 percent cleaner than it was before.
The effectiveness of this smog-vacuuming structure could result in its design being replicated and placed in various locations in any city or town that is affected by excessive pollution and smog.

1. Air Pollution Reduction - The effectiveness of the smog-sucking vacuum tower in reducing air pollution could inspire the development of similar structures in other polluted cities.
2. Environmental Innovation - The smog-sucking vacuum tower represents an innovative solution to combat air pollution and could lead to the development of other environmentally friendly technologies.
3. Urban Sustainability - The use of vacuum towers to reduce smog and pollution in cities highlights the importance of sustainable practices in urban areas.
1. Environmental Technology - The development and implementation of smog-sucking vacuum towers could create opportunities in the environmental technology industry.
2. Architecture and Urban Planning - Integrating vacuum towers into urban infrastructure could create new opportunities for architects and urban planners to create sustainable and pollution-reducing designs.
3. Air Quality Monitoring - The need for accurate measurement and monitoring of air pollution could increase with the adoption of smog-sucking vacuum towers in polluted cities.
