Mother nature was the first thing that was sacrificed at the altar of Technological advancement and industrial revolution. We are seeing lesser trees and greenery with every passing day. Forests are being razed to make room for more development.
Pollution in our environment is all due to the machinery that we have created and the urbanization that is taking place. Congested cities are so polluted that one finds it really hard to breathe in them. Say hello to the University of Engineering and Technology of Peru that is opening a new campus in downtown Lima. The university has come up with a billboard that will clean the air in order to minimize the impact on local air quality when the construction starts. For our regular readers, you will remember that this university and billboards are not new; the students from this university have already created a billboard that was capable of generating water.
Speaking of air quality, Lima has some of the worst. However, UTEC designed the billboard specifically for this purpose and therefore, it has been manufactured so as to the filter out the types of impurities that are usually found at a construction site such as dust, metal particles, stone dust, bacteria and germs.
If this project proves to be a success; UTEP will manufacture more of such billboards and soon you will be living a pollution free environment.
