We recognize that it is irresponsible to smoke the sky, but we can not abandon transport with DIC. Moreover, some enterprising minds consider the exhaust gases of cars as a gift and rich source of non-useless raw materials – carbon. All that is needed, put on the pipe filter-collection and think of how to recycle what comes into it.
The problem is that this thick and greasy soot is oversaturated with heavy metals and other chemical compounds from the category of carcinogens. What’s the use of carrying dangerous mud from one place to another? In the Singapore company Graviky Labs, KAALINK is developed – an exhaust pipe nozzle that collects up to 95% of solids, filters and compresses them into a carbon-rich powder.
In fact, this is a ready-made toner or when adding liquid, the ink is radically black. Absolutely harmless to health, according to the authors of the startup, but in very small numbers. The hours of operation of the car engine are transformed into a few milliliters of the finished substance – the more valuable and interesting it is. And therefore from the economic point of view, for industrial processing of emissions into the atmosphere, technology is virtually useless.
But lovers of conceptual creativity can contribute to the protection of the environment and at the same time provide themselves with an exclusive resource for painting or silkscreen printing. The startup is called AirInk, badly needs financing and has already been submittedto Kickstarter.
