Scientists from a company called Gravinky Labs, which is a spinoff company of MIT, devised a solution for the air pollution problem we have today. By using the device called Kaalink, they could turn vehicle exhausts to usable ink.Our device is designed as a clever fusion of electronic sensors, mechanical actuators and a collection system," company co-founder Anirudh Sharma said in a statement. The said device is clamped to the exhaust pipe of vehicles, after which it filters and captures unburned carbon emitted by incomplete engine combustion. The process of converting the unburned carbon to ink is still kept secret by Graviky Labs, but Sharma said that when the process is done the product is high-quality ink which can be sold in consumer and industrial markets.According to tests at Graviky Labs, the device captures up to 93 percent of the emitted pollution from standard internal combustion engines. It takes about 45 minutes of exhaust filtering to produce an ounce of ink.As of now, the Kaalink device is still on development, but it is intended to be deployed on cars, trucks, chimneys and other devices that emits carbon so that everyone can capture their own pollution and recycle it.Want to know more about this awesome device?
