In Lima, the notoriously polluted capital of Peru, a retired naval engineer by the name of Jorge Gutierrez has invented a giant air purifier and has placed it in Lima’s district of Jesus Maria.
The giant air purifier has been termed by Gutierrez as a “super tree”, and they include large billboards that act as giant air purifiers, or a filter of sorts, to absorb carbon dioxide and smog.
The clean air is then channelled into a section of the purifier, connected by tubes. What is shocking is the sheer, visible quantity of smog and contaminants that is collected as a result.
