Biodemoc / algal cleaner

Biodemoc
Biodemoc

Biodemoc are a group of bionic robots that not only have a most suitable shape for cleaning alga bloom in the water but also have the most advanced way of cooperating together. A enzymatic biofuel cell is set in each Biodemoc which allows it to gain the energy of working just by 'eating' alga.Since thisreaction needs oxygen, we design two air holes in the part above water.After decomposition residue of alga will be kept in the machine so it(mostly mineral that stimulate alga bloom in the sea will not go back to sea. Water can flow out through a outfall.
