Air pollution on a global and urban scale is a huge problem. Levels of C02 due to human activities have reached record levels of over 400PPM. Opposed to 350 ppm which is cited as a safe level (Hansen, James, et al. Target Atmospheric CO2: Supporting Material. April 7, 2008) On an urban scale the World Health Organisation predicts that life expectancy is reduced by 8 months due to air pollution.
The Jungle creates a system for cleaning the air on our site, which could be applied to others around Barcelona or the world.
A cloud problem requires a cloud solution. The jungle senses the cloud of pollution from external sources before reacting, creating a cloud on site which captures pollution. This cloud is then manipulated to rain on site through over seeding, removing the pollution from the air.
