A new commercial is in the works to clean the air in your car.
The product is being marketed as a “smart” car air purifying system that can be installed by owners who don’t want to purchase one of the pricey, high-tech devices.
The idea is that a vehicle owner can install the smart air purifiers in a garage, or in a nearby car wash.
In an interview with CNBC, the company says the “smart car air cleaner” will reduce the amount of pollutants emitted from your car by more than 90 percent.
The smart air cleaners work by measuring the carbon monoxide content in your air and filtering it out.
The company claims it can cut the carbon dioxide level in your vehicle by 80 percent in as little as 30 minutes.
The air purification is supposed to last about six months.
The technology is still being developed and is still a long way from being commercially available, but if it proves to be useful, it could potentially save billions of dollars in air pollution costs.
In a statement, the Air Resources Board said the device “could help reduce pollution by improving the performance of commercial air cleaners.”
It’s a great idea, but the technology could actually be used against it.
A new study released by the Environmental Protection Agency says that by 2020, more than 1.3 million American homes could be at risk of becoming “air quality hotspots,” as a result of emissions from diesel-powered cars.
That’s an increase of almost 6,000 homes per day over the next 20 years, according to the study.
According to the EPA, the increase in emissions will result in about 10,000 premature deaths.
