Bike-sharing company ofo is hoping that the bicycles can help alleviate pollution issues in large cities

Dutch artist and eco-tech innovator Daan Roosegaarde has partnered with Chinese bike-sharing company ofo and design platform Tezign to make his pollution-cleaning bicycle available to 20 million users in China. The smog-free bicycle employs the same technology as Roosegaarde’s smog-free tower, an ion-based system that takes in polluted air and releases clean air.

“Beijing used to be an iconic bicycle city. We want to bring back the bicycle as a cultural icon of China and as the next step towards smog free cities,” Roosegaarde explained in a press release. The concept aligns with growing popularity of bike-sharing programs in China (one company, Mobike, offers a million bikes in Beijing alone). While the project is still in its beginning stages, it’s a clever and promising approach to China’s pollution problem.
