Abstract
Air quality in major cities is reaching worrisome levels across the planet owing to large-scale industrialization. As a result, air purification systems are becoming a fertile and emerging field for research. Here, consideration is given to the use of a small-medium scale air purification system for cities using a kind of solar thermal panels by inducing local convective currents intended to be used in parks, housing estates, or similar urban places providing a local improvement of the quality o...
