Algae rather than trees to clean up the air in our cities ? It is possible with URBAN ALGAE !

Much more than trees, it is micro-algae or phytoplankton that clean up our atmosphere. They are at the bottom of the food chain and are an essential link in life on earth, just that! If they only exist naturally in the sea or bodies of water, why not implant them in our cities? This is the idea of ​​the Bordeaux start-up URBAN ALGAE, currently in a crowdfunding campaign!

URBAN ALGAE's project is therefore to set up urban farms in the form of green walls to reduce air pollution in cities.

"1m3 of phytoplankton can depollute as much as the equivalent of 80 to 100 trees!"

In addition to being super-absorbers of CO2 which would purify the air in the city and allow us to breathe better, these algae can also be marketed for the food industry or the cosmetic sector because they are very rich in minerals and therefore very good for our health. Does Spirulina speak to you?

URBAN ALGAE is in the midst of a crowdfunding campaign to finance its first installations. Help them by participating in their KISSKISSBANKBANK campaign and help make the air in our cities better:
