Biological Reactor Absorbs Carbon Dioxide and Generates Fuel


Mindless unlimited use of naturalresources created a huge number of environmental problems, including the result of global warming. The main reason for climate change was the release of a huge amount of CO2 into the atmosphere as a result of energy production.

Research Engineers from an American CompanyHypergiant Industries has developed a prototype biological reactor whose carbon dioxide absorption performance is 400 times that of trees. This produces additional environmentally friendly fuel.


At the heart of an unusually effective bioreactorthe property of certain types of algae was used to absorb huge volumes of CO2, producing fuel that is harmless to nature. One small device, whose geometrical dimensions are 90 by 90 by 210 cm, was able to “remove” carbon dioxide from the environment comparable to the amount absorbed by trees located on an area of ​​300 square meters.


Thus, the natural process of photosynthesis,during which algae absorb СО2 and Н2О, and with the help of solar energy they generate the energy necessary for life, it was rebuilt to produce additional environmentally friendly fuel.
As “absorbers” of CO2 in a reactorAlgae Chlorella vulgaris were used, the carbon dioxide processing efficiency of which is significantly higher than other plants. Algae placed in a closed volume of the reactor pipeline are irradiated with artificial light, and air is pumped from the environment.

Scientists called the device Eos. The fairly compact size of the reactor allows you to install it directly on the streets, cleaning them from excess carbon dioxide, while producing clean fuel. Bioreactors will go on sale in 2020.
