Put the charcoal in a 5 gallon bucket. Put holes in the side, under the height of the charcoal, and on the bottom if the holes are small enough such that the charcoal doesn’t fall through. Find a fan on Amazon with the correct diameter to sit in the top. Boom. Filter.

Oh and make sure the bottom isn’t sitting flat on the floor if you put holes on the bottom. Put something underneath like some nuts/washers or books(off to the side)so there’s at least an inch under the bottom for air to flow.

You could also get an exhaust fan for like a grow room, with some dryer hose attached, and put the hose entrance right next to the printer, and the fan exhausting outside through a window, so you won’t need to filter your air to begin with.

Edit- dude shouldn’t need to do any of this, it’s his employer’s job. If it was just him and his printer, I’d recommend he does what I suggested above.^^

No. These are probably hazardous fumes. His employer has a duty to his safety. If his employer refuses his duty, further steps must be taken. This is a potential health and safety violation. Any steps must be on the employer. People are more important than profits.
