About the Cover: A solar-assisted large-scale cleaning system (SALSCS) is proposed for urban air remediation. The system consists of a solar collector, a chimney, and a filter bank. The air flow is driven by buoyancy towards the chimney. A filter bank is used to collect the PM2.5 and larger PM. The system can be complemented by introduction of fans to generate electricity or drive the flow in the absence of solar radiation. Numerical simulations demonstrated that SALSCS is promising for air pollution abatement. View the article.
