Abstract

Generating electrical power is very important globally especially for air-conditioning during summer season in hot countries like Bahrain. In countries producing oil and natural gas, power stations depend on burning natural gas to produce electrical power that is used for different purposes: lighting, cooking systems and industrial purposes. This paper presents a proposal for a simple device that helps purify gases through series of stages. These depend on filtering and moisturing the smoke produced by the power stations. The purified air in its late stage is pumped again to the atmosphere with far fewer pollutants. The purity of the air released is estimated to be between 20% to 30% purer that the original smoke produced. This purity could be even higher depending on the number of filters used in the smoke tower. This purifying device (tree of life) is promising in reducing air pollution. This is particularly important considering that the world is trying to reduce the release of heating gases like carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, sulphate and other pollutants.
