An Indian startup 'Graviky Labs' captures air pollution and turns it into ink

A startup company in India has developed a system for converting carbon emissions from cars and chimneys into ink, and is now being sold as pens.

The company comprises MIT Media Lab graduates who developed this particular system while studying.

"Over the last 150 years, mankind has depended on burning fossil fuels directly or indirectly for their energy needs," said the team. "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. Our vision is to arrest the vehicular soot in a way that it doesn't reach our lungs."

The product Air Ink is the result of pollution particles, the unburned carbon soot that exits the car exhausts, chimneys and generators.
