For this exercise, I thought of baleen, the filter-feeder system in the mouths of blue whales. So the way blue whales feed is by taking in water by opening their mouths, then they expel that water through the baleen which filters out animals such as krill which remain as a food source of the whale. In a similar way, filtration systems in buildings filter out contaminants and undesired particles in liquids and gases that are cycled throughout the building. Although baleen in whales filter out food and filtration systems in buildings filter out waste, both are analogous in their principal idea and function.
