A British startup has developed a technology that will help clear the air and feed those in need.
startup system Arborea
Reports about it naked-science, transfers Sotsportal.
“The Arborea system includes growing microscopic plants — microalgae or phytoplankton — on structures like solar panels that can be installed on the ground, in buildings and other objects to improve air quality,” the author noted.
During photosynthesis, these plants remove carbon dioxide from the air, while simultaneously generating oxygen. According to the startup site, just one acre of their system in terms of air purification is equivalent to 100 acres of trees.
Arborea will work with experts from Imperial College London to develop new innovative technologies that experts hope will improve air quality in the UK capital. The institution will provide funding to a company created by former student Julian Melchiorri to develop a pilot system for growing on the campus in White City, an area in west London.
- The Arborea BioSolar system aims to revolutionize air quality in London and around the world. Our administration plans to be the first to place them in our area: we are determined that Hammersmith and Fulham will lead the way in cleaning up polluted air. This advanced biotechnology is the latest and most radical innovation introduced in the White-City biotechnology center. Imperial campus experts are already changing the world and showing what can be achieved when the world's leading academic institution and business come together to pave the way and develop a local economy that works for everyone, ”says Hammersmith and Fulham Head Office in London, Stephen Cowan ).
It is noteworthy that air purification is only one of the advantages of the BioSolar Leaf technology: microscopic plants also produce organic protein, which Arborea experts extract and use to create plant foods.
“When I founded Arborea, my goal was to fight climate change and at the same time address critical issues related to the food system.” Our pilot project will produce environmentally friendly food additives, while at the same time cleaning the air, releasing oxygen and removing carbon dioxide from the environment. This will provide an opportunity to fully utilize the benefits of BioSolar Leaf from Arborea in actual operating conditions and will help unleash the full potential of the technology, ”said Arborea CEO Julian Melihorri in a published press release.
Air pollution is considered a serious problem worldwide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 4.2 million people die each year due to air pollution, and 91 percent of the world's population lives in areas where air quality does not meet WHO's regulatory limits.
