Capabilities of Largest air purifier of World
The tower seems to be functioning perfect as per the reports released by the researchers. The tower has so far generated more than 10 million cubic metres (353 million cubic feet) of clean air. In the past few months the tower has been able to purify the air of over a distance of 10 square kilometres.
Cao Junji, the research head has said that for testing purpose of tower, more than twelve pollution monitoring stations are placed in different locations of Xian to understand and observe the effect of the world largest air purifier tower. He also added that the tower has been able to brought the air pollution level from sever to moderate mode. The more detailed and confirmed data will be released in March by the department.
How World largest air purifier Works?

- Tower sucks polluted air inside glasshouse of tower.
- Air is then heated by using solar energy.
- Hot air is then processed through multiple cleaning filters and released in atmosphere.
As per patent application filed by the makers in 2014, the height of the tower will be more and will be up to 500 meters (1,640 feet) with a diameter of 200 metres (656 feet).
