Coral Foaming Machine

CFM can be used to reduce the temperature of the seawater around the coral and purify the water. The wind turbine charges the bump which send the air in to the CFM in bottom of sea. With the air flowing, it can bring the seawater into the Honeycomb activated carbon then it will absorb impurities and generate micro bubbles. The bubbles will flow up and carry the thermal energy which in the bottom of sea. Finally, the wind that from the wind turbine will blow those bubbles off, in order to reduce the temperature of seawater. And place the calcareous ooze around the corals which benefits the growth of the coral polyps and algae.
