With the constant increase of the world’s population, our planet is facing even more environmental challenges such as global warming, extreme natural events, mass extinction, and so on. Since the second half of the 18th century, with the advent of the Industrial Revolution, the quality of the air in all the major cities in Europe and the USA getting worse, and worse due to the emerge of huge factories that used coal extensively.
