The world is facing serious problems because of climate change. Many efforts are being made in terms of policymaking, technology, and innovation to tackle climate change. One of the major problems in urban areas is the increasing level of carbon. The construction industry is one of the major sources for the emission of carbon i.e. around 25% to 40% of global emission of carbon comes from the construction business.
Curios Use of Carbon
Carbon Craft Design in collaboration with the Boston-based Air-Ink launched the innovative equipment that captures the pollutants from the air and converts them into tiles. 30,000 liters (30,000,000 cubic centimeters) of air will be purified to make one tile. The process of making the tiles includes cutting, shaping, joining, and filling the mould before finally forming the tiles. The price of the one tile is around ₹190, whereas the conventional tiles range from ₹50-₹1000.
We utilised the colour of pollution to our aesthetic advantage and created tiles in shades of black only. But since the pollution source varies each time, the shade of black could also vary.Kishor Avhad, Lead Designer, Carbon Craft Design
