Generating energy by cleaning the air we breath sounds like wishful thinking, but Belgian scientists are working hard on making it a reality. According to University of Leuven’s website, researchers successfully managed to convert pollution into energy, in association with the University of Antwerp. The process the scientists have developed is remarkably simple and addresses two major needs that are facing society today: clean air and alternative energy production. The Belgian research team has created a small device made out of two compartments that are separated by a membrane made from specialized nanomaterials. When polluted air passes through the membrane the catalysts in it are able…This story continues at The Next Web
