This lamp absorbs 150 times more CO2 than a tree
It’s still in the “so crazy it just might work” stage, but these microalgae-powered lamps, invented by French biochemist Pierre Calleja, could absorb a ton of carbon from the air every year. That’s as much as 150 to 200 trees. [x]
YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. This is ingenious.
The design is a light bulb surrounded by a glass casing. The glass is filled with (water based) media and microalgae. The top is permeable to gasses so that gas exchange can occur. All of the wiring is linked to the grid underground.
Since the light source is inside, it gets scattered and “dimmed” by the water and algae. This makes it less glaringly bright and scatters the light wider, which is good for a street light. It is not longer white light as well, which helps make it easier on the eyes while still providing light.
At the same time, it provides the light for photosynthesis in the algae, so they are continuously exchanging CO2 for O2, not just in the day. It also provides a source of heat, which helps keep the algae from going dormant during cold weather (as in the snowy picture above).
And notice how I did not specify permeability - that’s because NOx’s (NO and NO2) are also permeable and can be used as nitrogen sources to microalgae. In fact, algae are relatively low maintenance. As autotrophs, they don’t require super complex media, not does it really need to be changed/added to. (I’m actually fairly certain that there would still be algae in these tanks a year later; it may need to be cleaned or something, but there would be some living algae.)
DO NOT BE DECEIVED!!! This is a bad idea! our trees, live off of CO2, yes, the CO2 humans emit with all the tech we’ve invented is killing the world, .. for humans, but it’s becoming a perfect world for plant life, maybe humans should’ve thought of that before we fucked up. But that’s human kind for you isn’t it.
When will this madness stop
When Leo wins an Oscar.
Reblogging for old times’ sake because I have a feeling these jokes end soon
He really friggin deserves
just because you’re not there to see it, does not mean it doesn’t exist
I’m sorry but is that a fucking SLENDERMAN????
ALL ABOARD THE NOPE TRAIN.
I THUGH THIS WAS A STICK BUG
slenderman is real and i’m gonna fuck him
SLENDERMAN IS REAL.
