Thermal power plants most often have no smoke filters. Electrofilters for purging larger gas particles from smoke are permeable to the most dangerous pollutants, such as sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides. By this Project, we suggest the solution which is a unique smokestack filter. Its design allows capturing pollutants such as: sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, and carbon dioxide.

The filter is made out of natural, environmentally friendly materials. This biodegradable material, after trapping air pollutants, can be used as a crop fertilizer. This material can replace limestone as a scrubber filter. There are many advantages to using this filter over limestone:

  • No power plant downtime for cleaning
  • No stubborn scale deposits 
  • A neutral pH value, even after absorbing acidic oxides 

Our filters are both cost-effective and readily available. We know how to provide clean air for future generations.
