“Over the last 150 years, mankind has depended on burning fossil fuels directly or indirectly for their energy needs. Soot is the major byproduct of the burning of fossil fuels. Research has shown that many premature deaths are directly related to soot in the environment. Particle exposure leads to around 20,000 premature deaths in America each year. Data also shows that soot annually causes almost 300,000 asthma attacks and 2 million lost workdays due to respiratory problems.

Our vision is to arrest the urban PM air pollution in a way that it doesn’t reach our lungs or waste streams. The process of creating AIR-INK™carefully ensures that the end product is safe-to-use. AIR-INK is the first ink made entirely out of air pollution. After capturing air-pollution through pilot trials of KAALINK™ and other pollution source we repurpose carbon rich pollutants into tools for art. The pollutants which could have been in the lungs of millions of people, or mixed into our water, land streams are now beautifully resting as art.”
