Air farming is a concept now. It does sound funny that you are farming something that is everywhere and it’s free for everybody but that’s not the case in China. China has a very old smog problem in their atmosphere, alarmingly increased environmental pollution and all the polluted air particles are the main cause of smog. This smog and polluted air is a global problem especially in china and it is rising another new industry i.e. Bottled Breathable Fresh Air. Yes it is an industry now. China is the biggest buyer of bottled fresh air which you can breathe when air is not clear.
This concept was started by a Canadian entrepreneur as a joke when he sells a zip lock bag of fresh breathable air on eBay for $0.99 and realized that there is a potential market for breathable air, and started to collect the air from the rocky mountains of Banff in Alberta and British Columbia in Canada. They collected bottles and jars and started to sell in China. After that more companies formed in Britain, Switzerland, and many other counties to sell fresh breathable air. A glass jar of fresh air from UK is sold in china for $100. Canadian start up called Vitality Air is the biggest suppliers for china they are selling a compressed can of 3L of fresh breathable air for $25 which last for 150-170 breaths.
In order to collect purest form of breathable air is very simple and involving no machinery. It’s like farming where the product which is air in this case is cultivated by the farmers which we can call air farmers who then put bottles and jars in special nets attached to one end of a stick and they run through pastures to collect or we can harvest the product. And then there are categories and type of air like some people want air from the top of the mountain at the day time when it’s windy, on the other hand some people ask for the air from the bottom of the mountain or dark air at night when it’s still and not windy at all.
Air can also be collected in can in a compressed form. That whole mechanism is also very simple involving an air compressor that fills the can and you can use these cans only with pressure regulators that maintain the safe pressure for inhaling. You can fill the cans and can sell them at a very high price and there is tremendous demand of canned or bottled fresh breathable air in china. China is not the only market all these companies are looking towards India for their future market, due to very high pollution level in India.
