‘Biosolar Leaf’-Air purifier equivalent to 100 trees

Researchers of Arborea, biochemical tech startup, developed a cultivation system that allows microscopic plants like microalgae and phytoplankton to grow on large solar panel-like structures that can be installed on land, buildings, and on roofs to improve the city’s air quality. Scientists are confident that their pioneering ‘biosolar leaf’ technology can do the work of 100 trees. Inspired by the natural process of photosynthesis, the biosolar panels allow the microorganisms to absorb CO2 from the surrounding area and generate breathable oxygen back out again. They also help produce a nutritious, sustainable plant protein with tiny environmental impact.
