Hi, i have an idea for a more eco-friendly blast furnace.

 Its a simple furnace except with a top leading to a chimney (like a fireplace). Halfway up there is a change in the pipes, instead of going straight up, it leads slightly downward til it reaches a pool of water, where the pipe emits the smoke into the water. After wards the smoke will come out from the water and up into another chimney leading straight up to escape. Do you think the water would be able to clean at least some of the air impurities? Here is my picture for a basic idea. Comments and ideas are welcome.  P.S. -I got this idea from a bong (no i'm not a pothead nor have i ever tried).

Websearch "smoke stack scrubber". There's been a lot of work done on ways to extract stuff from exhausts of various kinds.
