City Forest / HVAC system

City Forest
City Forest

"City Forests" is a new-tech HVAC (heating-ventilation-air conditioner) System designed to reduce greenhouse effect.
Instead totally changing the original HVAC system in buildings, we just add a chemical reaction plate (graphene) which won't prevent the workflow of original system and can transform CO2 to CH3OH and O2. Since the workflow of our system works like plants, we called it "City Forests" plan.
This plan can be implement within one decade. This system don't need to change the construction of buildings, it will be easy to promote and apply.
