YOU can help to improve air pollution! Under the heavy pollution of the old coal power plants not only the nature suffers as well as the population. The coal-fired power plants above all pollute the air, creating smog. The health consequences of the air pollution occur rather slowly and inconspicuously, which is why they are perceived late.

The fine dust pollutes airways, which leads to reduced oxygen uptake. Furthermore, toxic, gaseous substances also enter the blood via the respiratory tract. To process these, oxygen is needed. As a result, more oxygen is needed to burn the toxic substances in an already reduced oxygen uptake.

The resulting lack of oxygen is responsible for many illnesses and premature deaths. In addition to air pollution, the pollution of water resources is another problem for humanity and nature. Every year, around 3.3 million people around the world die prematurely from the effects of air.
