Ink made from air pollution! Sounds too good to be true?

Air-Ink is made from polluted air captured in specially developed carbon emission collectors, retrofitted to cars. The captured carbon soot is collected without affecting the car’s performance. Heavy metals and particle carcinogens are removed to leave a purified carbon-based pigment. This carbon is then processed to make different types of inks and paints.

Air-Ink has produced 770 litres of ink. This is equivalent to a diesel car driving non-stop for nearly two and a half years.

An early project using Air-Ink used outdoor posters in London to advertise Tiger beer.
