Algae-based Bioreactor

Sep 22, 2019

Development firm hypergiant industries has designed a bioreactor that can suck as much carbon dioxide from the air as an acre of forest. filled with algae, the 3’x3’x7′ cube is intended for use in urban environments where it can fit within office buildings. the device could give dense cities a new weapon in the fight against climate change.

The prototype device, which hypergiant industries says is currently in operation, is three-by-three-by-seven feet. it’s a closed system that works indoors, connecting with an HVAC system to reduce CO2 levels inside and release cleaner air. the long-term concept includes integration with ‘smart’ city programs where the algae byproduct of biodiesel can provide fuel for a variety of other products that promote and improve urban living.”
