Can you imagine making anything out of air pollution?

We all know that air pollution is increasing day by day. But people from Graviky Labs found the use of air pollution. They made a device that can convert air pollution to consumer safe inks.
This is the World's first ink made out of air pollution.

“Pollution is nothing but the resources we are not harvesting. We allow them to disperse because we’ve been ignorant of their value.”                       
                                     ~ R. Buckminster Fuller

Anirudh Sharma first proposed the idea of air ink in 2013. In 2016, the air ink products were made and were given to graphic artists in Hong Kong. The response was good. One of the artist says that he was skeptical at first, but after he used the product he found that markers are thicker than traditional ink, which makes them perfect for painting.

Sharma claims that A single Air Ink pen contains 30-40 minutes of carbon emissions from a single car.
30ml of ink it makes arrests air pollution equal to about 45 minutes of car emissions. "Over 2,500 hours worth of vehicular air pollution harvested from already plying vehicle," says Sharma.

Graviky says "We believe that in nature, nothing is a waste. Everything has a value to it."

"If you're doing something that makes sense to people, the money just comes. The biggest challenge is, can you stick to an idea? That's the more important thing, rather than worrying about the money." says Kaushik
