NEW DELHI: The Delhi government is all set to fight air pollution which is at alarming level. Government started testing ‘anti-pollution’ tower on trial basis at the Indraprastha Marg flyover, ITO.
” The towers absorb particulate matter from surroundings and release fresh air back into the atmosphere. They have been installed on an experimental basis for demonstrating its effectiveness in the reduction of particulate matter,” said the government.
The anti-pollution tower sucks in polluted air and removes nearly 90% of the particulate matter and releases fresh air out. Officials said that results will be analyzed over short period of time and more machines would be installed if project gets successful.
Delhi Environment minister Imran Hussain said that effectiveness of towers will be monitored and the results obtained will be evaluated for checking their efficacy and utility.
