Zefiro / Public lighting pole


Zefiro treats the decontamination of the air through the use of biomass and titanium dioxide. It's internal structure is made of clay mixed with titanium dioxide, a non-polluting and non toxic material, that helps filtrating the pollution of the air. Optimizing the natural process of absorption of pollutants by plants, this project aims to improve air quality, provide clean energy and instigate the citizen. With an heliothermic plant inside and solar panels as power supply, a clean and efficient energy source, Zefiro can generate the energy it needs to its functions and be used to street lighting.
