Wind energy pollution removers
Wind turbines are being used to generate electricity in several countries (Denmark for example). Why don't they have turbines that exist to remove polluting particles from the air and perhaps transfer them to the base of the station. If some of the emissions of automobiles could be captured by a "windmill" then instead of using the power to generate electricity it could be used to gather the particles and concentrate them into something that is no longer floating in the air, but contained in a solid lump.

Since the air cleaners are run by wind energy, there are no electricity costs to run them.

Reward: I hate air pollution. So if you can invent this, you would make me happy. That would be my reward.
