Daniel took part in Climathon from Climate-KIC: a 24-hour challenge to design a solution for a local climate change problem, in this case for tackling London's air pollution problem and his team, "FiltAIR", won the challenge!

See  article 

FiltAir, came up with the innovative idea of attaching pollutant filters to London buses, which will travel all over the city, all day long cleaning up the air quality in the city. FiltAir estimate that this method will take out 99% of pollutants in London’s air.
