The man, known as 'Brother Nut' is said to have the idea after he was surprised to read news reports about air quality in the Chinese capital. Then he started a dust-proofing plan for 100 days.
He used a 1,000-watt vacuum cleaner that can absorb 100 grams of "dust and smoke" mixture from the air inhaled by about 62 people in four days.
Brother Nut then mixed it at a factory in Tangshan city in Hebei Province. The result of the dust straw was mixed with clay and converted into a brick weighing "a few pounds".
