Algae-Based Bioreactor Swallows CO2 Faster Than Trees! How?

Did you know that algae are one of the most efficient instruments in nature for carbon dioxide consumption? Algae need three crucial elements to grow: light, water and carbon dioxide.

CO2 Quantities

Nowadays, people are more worried about the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the air. Scientists have shown in the early 1800s that greenhouses gases in the atmosphere maintain heat, now also known as global warming. CO2 is a significant contributor to this problem. But how did this problem arise? Well, burning fuels, like natural gas or oil or greenhouse gas emissions, are responsible for a lot of CO2 in the atmosphere. 72% of the total is CO2, in comparison with 18% methane and 9% nitrous oxide.

CO2 And Bio Sequestration

Man, tanks algae

Since 1950, the amount of these emissions as a result of human activity has increased by more than 400 per cent. Although the effects of climate change are already visible worldwide, many experts claim that it will get even worse as CO2 emissions continue to grow. We need to do something.

Does algae remove carbon from the atmosphere?
Algae could help remove carbon dioxide from atmosphere - researchers. ... The algae remove CO2 from the atmosphere and turn it into an oil that then serves as the basis for producing carbon fibre, thereby making the capture and reuse of carbon emissions economically viable.

One way to slow down this effect is something called bio-commitment; this relates to the capture and storage of carbon dioxide through biological processes. This is an extension of photosynthesis, where plants, such as trees, use energy from the sun to convert carbon dioxide into oxygen. Currently, an A.I. company from Austin, Texas, thinks it has found a way to make this process considerably more efficient. It is a combination of advanced artificial intelligence and algae, the group of photosynthetic organisms that you probably know best from the green, plant-like film that covers ponds and other water bodies.

Algae-Based Bioreactor Is The Answer

One of the most significant human challenges of our time is the current global warming crisis. Are trees really the best solution for capturing CO2 or are there other effective alternatives? It appears that algae are much more effective than trees in diminishing atmospheric carbon, and can be used to create carbon-negative fuels, plastics, textiles, food, fertilisers and more. Research has led to the use of algae and A.I. to create the Eos Bioreactor, a prototype bioreactor that can perform up to 400 times better than trees.

What is the role of algae in the carbon cycle?
Algae and plants absorbs carbon dioxide and give out oxygen but they also return a little carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Algae also need water and they find their nutrients in the water. Algae give us oxygen and use carbon dioxide. This process is called 'photosynthesis'.

As said in the introduction: algae are one of the most efficient instruments in nature for carbon dioxide consumption. they need three essential elements to grow: light, water and carbon dioxide. By using CO2, it produces biomass, which can then be processed into materials ranging from fuels, oils and fertilisers to plastics, cosmetics and even protein-rich foods. Algae can not only far surpass the efficiency of agricultural crops in terms of carbon fixation, but they also do not compete for the same croplands. That makes it twice as good a solution alongside the forests that take up space.

Algae-Based Device Swallows CO2 Faster Than Trees

The manufactured device is a controlled closed system model. Every part of the growth process is tightly controlled and optimised with machine intelligence to maximise CO2 use. This is not the first time that researchers have focused on algae as a potential game-changer for carbon fixation. But now, the new bioreactor not only promises to make these capabilities smarter, thanks to machine learning tech but also to wrap its solution in a disarmingly small form factor.

Algae-Based Bioreactor Still In Early Stages

Climate change is a big problem, and we need to do something about it. It asks for big solutions. One Eos Bioreactor absorbs the same amount of carbon from the atmosphere as an entire hectare of trees. It remains to be seen whether this turns out to be the solution people are hoping for.

As I know, the GPH (Green Power House) prject started in Montana, few years back, was also based on the same principle. The more was to mix decomposed algae with biochar & to mix it in soil in order to rejuvenate the Rhizosphere. Recently the Archeologists discovered use of the same principle in the ancient Elderado of Amazon basin. The potentiality discovered is to enhance productivity @>800 % in comparison to the poor yellow forest soil of Amazon. In tropical areas (with more temperatur) the process found more efficiently acting. At this Juncture of history of humanity, I don’t find any reason to keep the technology away from common people throughout the globe. So I would request you to spread & encourage to enact everyone on the same. I shall be with you, if you need any insight thinking from my part to keep this planet habitable for our next generation to whom we are accountable too....
Also please keep in mind that, "Whenever we talk about Ecology & Economics at a time, Economy wins hands-down, but at the end of the day Ecology stands rigid with three (3) basic elements (materials) required for every life ie. 1)Air, 2)Water & 3)Food to continue ths discussion on Economy on the next morning." So my friends, please make a good endevour worldwide to save the humanity byond 2030. UN has warned,”Our inactions mag initiate tipping point irreversible climate chaos by 2030. Thanks & Regards : Arup K.C
