GSK takes Otravine’s air-purifying bubble to COP26

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) has taken an “educational architecture” piece that purifies the air to the 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow, to flag the devastating effect of air pollution on children’s health.

The inflatable structure, which is called the Air Bubble, uses microalgae to actively filter and re-metabolise pollution particles and carbon dioxide, allowing its visitors to experience cleaner air, GSK said.

Through it, Otrivine “is demonstrating how innovative nature-based technology can expand the functionality of our nose to ‘clean’ the air we breathe in polluted urban environments”, the manufacturer added.

The Air Bubble is part of Otravine’s Actions to Breathe Cleaner campaign, which involves more than 1,000 school children tracking air quality in their area.

As part of the campaign, the participating children also receive education about the small, personal daily actions they can take to help them breathe cleaner.
