Hello, I am 19. I live in Korea.
Korea is a really good country but Korea has a big problem.
It is the fine dust!!
Every year, Korea suffers from fine dust.
Some days, fine dust is so bad that I can't even breathe.
So I thought about how I could breathe clean air.
Then I thought about selling clean air.

The following is a way to sell clean air.
1. Build a building so that fine dust does not come from the outside.
At this time, the ceiling of the building is made transparent so that the sunlight works well
2. In this building, various plants and animals are raised to create an ecosystem.
At this time, an agricultural sprinkler is installed in the building so that plants and animals can grow well.
3. Make a can of clean air out of this place for people to breathe
or Put air in a spray-type container and spray it into the room so that it can be purified.

That's all I thought of.

I want you to ask me questions, problems, or advice about this idea.

Thank you!!!!!

Would be easier to just set up oxygen bars and skip all that other expensive stuff.

Sorry, but, I don't think it's really the same thing. What she want to sell is a "clean" air, meaning clear from dust, bad substances, ...
An oxygen bar is selling oxygen-enriched air. Sorry, this is clearly an occupational hazard but the effects of breathing oxygen enriched air, on the medical point of view, are really negative. It makes the oxydative processes, responsible for tissue aging, go faster and stronger (that's why people living in upper altitudes tend to live longer : lesss oxygen), and it can cause hypercapnia, which can lead to trouble for breathing or loss of consciousness. I wouldn't really recommend it. On the other side, I think the perspective of breathing clean air can be really appealing.

Nevertheless, I think Lex is definetely right ; you should look for a much simpler way to do this.
May be air filtering machines for particles ? Or canned air from swiss mountains :blush: ?

Simpler is the point I was getting at. Something similar to an oxygen bar (which I know nothing about) is how I would think about approaching this versus building a building which will require a lot of time, investment, and resources.

First of all, thank you for leaving comments.
But I think the content in this clip is a little different from what I posted
I got good advice from you.
Thanks to you, I felt I needed to do something a little simpler.

Awesome. Just goes to show that with branding and marketing, one can make a business out of anything.
Like the NYC Garbage box.

Holy crap that's no joke...Looks like smog, but it's small rocks.

What about filters?

Or those stylish face masks with a built in electronic air purifier?

The national assembly passed a series of bills on Wednesday giving authorities access to emergency funds for measures that include the mandatory installation of high-capacity air purifiers in classrooms and encouraging sales of liquified petroleum gas vehicles, which produce lower emissions than those that run on petrol and diesel.

The measures will give government officials access to a US$2.65bn emergency fund
What about face masks disabled people can put on and take off? Like a hands free way to stick your face in the mask, then some extended arms wrap the strings around your ears..


Is this seasonal? If yes, then the indoor building may be a bad investment.


What about becoming a consultant? Go into buildings, measure particle levels, and draw plans to make it safer inside.

Or like a consumer product like Vitality Air, selling canned, Canadian air in China. Seems greasy to me, I prefer the large scale filtration. I get pretty sick of having air purifiers running during forest fire season can't imagine having it year round

Hi, I wanted to answer your question because I also live in South Korea. Those stylish masks do not have an electronic air purifier built-in. Different masks will have different protection levels, typically N90, N95, and N99. The higher the number, the greater the filtration rate. These masks are disposable and are not meant for daily use, you should use them 1 - 2 days at max. Typically 1 day is the max.

It's tough here in Korea, as people are pretty "used" to the fine air pollution. On bad days, you'll walk outside and see people 1.) Not wearing masks and 2.) Smoking at the same time. Although a number of people are now becoming aware of the issue or at least becoming a little serious about it.

It's annoying because even schools will invest in air purifiers, but keep windows open and not use the air purifier. A lot of money is going into educating the public.

Companies are currently taking advantage of the fine dust. Often times you'll see coffee shops or buildings advertise something along the lines of, "The air is bad today because of the fine dust... Come inside and enjoy a coffee with fresh air!".

I'm interested in providing clean air in the long-run, however, mask-wise... If you're trying to go into the business, it really seems like a raise to the cheapest product. I was thinking about developing an air purifier but trying to look for my purple cow.

Ahhh the Banff Air Company. Locals laugh at it here haha.

They hit a niche and they "solved a problem" for a lot of Asian tourists.
