Daan Roosegaarde,a Rotterdam-based designer, hopes to turn every bicycle into a personal smog scrubber. 

Although it’s being proposed in China, this kind of innovation would be important in cities around the world, Roosegaarde says that many big cities are often coated in a toxic mix of water droplets and small particles emitted from construction or transportation turning into large amounts of this slick dust. Which is linked to a number of respiratory illnesses and even heart disease. Every year, air pollution like is linked to as many as 7 million deaths globally.

“Living in the city of Beijing is the equivalent of 17 or 18 cigarettes a day, without the pleasure of the nicotine.” Roosegaarde 

By offering Beijingers a smog-cleaning solution, he hopes to further encourage China’s return to biking and prove that the concept can work in other cities. “Basically for me, it’s about designing to improve life,” he says. “How can we use creative thinking and technology to improve the environment and live better?”

Though the smog-busting bike is only a concept at the moment, Roosegaarde believes he’s shown the impact of his eco-sensitive design before.
