An unmanned aerial vehicle developed by the Aviation Industry Corporation of China meant to combat smog by spraying chemicals to freeze PM2.5 particles went through hours of testing at the Shashi Airport in Hubei province.
According to manufacturers, the drone can carry 700kg of smog-clearing chemicals that could be used over a five-kilometer radius and has a paragliding wing, allowing it to carry some three times more weight than the previous fixed-wing version.
More chemicals. Always more chemicals!
The drones are the latest project under the Chinese government’s “war on pollution” following recently approved plans to build the “world’s biggest” smog chamber in Beijing and attempts to blast the pollution away with liquid nitrogen.
