Car Exhaust Ink
If you're an eco-warrior like us, you'll want to see this awesome invention by Graviky Labs...
By now, we should all know that pollution is a big problem for our world, which has many detrimental effects on
our health and the environment. So we give big kudos to anyone working on solutions to reduce pollution, however big or small.
Technology developers, Graviky Labs, have designed a soot trap to fit over the exhaust pipes of major emitters like cars and diesel generators.
They call it a Kaalink, and each one can apparently collect up to 95 percent of the pollutants emitted from a tailpipe.
They then use the soot to create thick black inks! Now that's some innovative thinking.
It’s an intricate process, but according to Graviky Labs, it’s still far more sustainable than producing typical black carbon ink, which relies on the burning of fossil fuels to produce.
Check out their kickstarter now to not only help them refine the device but also to support them in their dream of scaling their business.
One idea, which sounds great to us, is to distribute Kaalinks to bus and taxi fleets so they can maximize the amount of carbon being captured.
(The plan is for these fleets to empty their own Kaalinks into carbon banks that Graviky will pick up and process.)
“Even if just 15 percent of the world’s black ink supply is replaced with Air Ink, we could end up sequestering a lot of air pollution,” -Sharma.
As we know, to combat climate change, everybody needs to pull together and do their bit, so this is certainly a worthy goal.
Plus, how cool is the branding?
