Scientists at the University of Belgrado created a “Liquid3″ that is useful to capture CO2 in the city and can be placed side by side to the traditional green.
At the basis of its functioning there are micro algaes that are fifty times more efficient than trees at capturing carbon dioxide.
Micro algaes are immersed in about 600 litres of water.
According to its creators, this urban photo-bio-reactor is not only capable of producing an amount of oxygen equivalent to what 200 square meters of lawn or a full-grown tree would produce, but it could be installed in high-pollution areas where greenery would have difficulty developing.
Liquid3 works in winter as well.
