Bengaluru: Smog tower to purify air has been installed by Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) at Hudson Circle.


The tower has been developed by the start-up Nutan Labs.

Bengaluru is one of the “highly polluted” city, said Chief Executive Officer (CEO) HS Nuthan, adding that they have observed almost 90 per cent reduction in ambient air pollutants of the area after using the nanotechnology.

The device uses nanoparticles to absorb pollutants from the air such as particulate matter (PM) 2.5, PM 10, oxides of carbon, sulphur, and nitrogen, he said.
To check the functioning and efficacy of the device, the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) has set up a mobile facility at the spot to study the real-time effects of the smog tower.
