Cities have an air pollution crisis.
According to the World Health Organization, 4.2 million people die every year because of outdoor air pollution. Furthermore, 91% of us live in places where air quality exceeds the WHO’s guideline limits. (source: WHO)
The fight for clean air starts now.
Meet our cell modules. They’re filled with pollution-fighting biofilms. They’re placed in public spaces where they can disarm the harmful pollutants you breathe every day.
A revolution in your streets.
Each cell grid is tailored to the specific pollutants in your home, neighborhood or transit system. These cells are a flexible, biocompatible alternative to traditional filter systems that usually end up in landfills.
CELLUL-AIR is a project created by thinkTANK, a team of design engineering students at Imperial College London and the Royal College of Art, as part of MSc/MA Innovation Design Engineering.
