Trees are one of the best ways to clean the air, but they need time and space to grow, a Mexican startup decided to use artificial trees to get rid of pollution.

According to the techxplore, the company named the company “Bayou Urban” is working on these artificial trees, as they absorbs air pollution as much as 368 real trees.

The towering metal structure uses microscopic algae to clean carbon dioxide and other pollutants from the atmosphere, and to bring clean oxygen back to the environment.It is 4.2 meters (about 14 feet) long and about three meters wide, with a steel stem.

“What this system does, thanks to technology, artificial trees inhale the air pollution with the use of biology to carry out the natural process of photosynthesis, just like a tree,” said Jaime Ferrer, co-founder of Bayomi Tech, which is responsible for the invention.
