Hebei Shoots Pollution Right Out Of The SkyPosted: 07/9/2014 9:00 am
A gigantic “cannon” mounted on the top of a truck has been seen making its way around the city of Zhangjiakou. While the device looks set to shoot down something huge, its targets are actually very small.
Officially unveiled on July 7, the “multi-function dust suppressor” shoots out a mist of water that helps reduce smog in urban areas by reducing the amount of dust particles, reports People‘s Daily Online.
It uses 10 tons of water in one hour, and can cover a total area of over 30,000 square meters. When it sprays the mist, it clears the air within 100 meters in diameter.
