The revolution in technology gives an upper hand to the people for making their lives easy and better. This technological growth gives rise in the number of industries and machines which consume a great amount of fuel and produces a big amount of gases which are harmful to the environment and to the various species and to various non-living objects. In the month November 2018, as per the latest air quality index of the various cities of India the pollution level is much above the danger level. So these toxic gases pollute the environment and need to be monitored and controlled by reducing them below the critical level. Everywhere it is a matter of serious discussion to find ways to control pollution. This paper discusses the newer ideas on CO2 harvesting. A case is being presented where an off-grid system using CO2 harvesting can be created and experimented. We throw light upon an Arduino based system that monitors the level of toxic gases like carbon dioxide and carbon mono oxide and helps in reducing them by consuming them to produce another useful product like electricity. This system is an Arduino based system consists of wireless sensor nodes, a cognitive radio node, and database to store the data. This proposed system helps in cleaning the environment and produces a very useful product for benefits the people.
