This giant vacuum cleaner sucks up toxic particles to purify air
Dutch tech startup Envinity Group unveils giant vacuum cleaner that filters 100 percent of fine particles and 95 percent of ultra-fine particles in the air.
AMSTERDAM — A Dutch tech company has unveiled a giant vacuum cleaner that purifies the air by sucking toxic particles out of the atmosphere.
The machine can filter 100 percent of fine particles and 95 percent of ultra-fine particles in the air, inventors the Envinity Group wrote on the company’s website. It can clean about 800,000 cubic meters of air an hour.
Fine particles in the air are caused by emissions from burning fuels and industrial combustion. Fine particles are particles smaller than 10 micrometers and ultra-fine particles are smaller than 0.1 micrometers.
Governments, businesses, and airports have already expressed an interest in the machine, according to RT.
