It uses a bacterium called Pseudomonas to reduce the micro plastics in the reservoir, when the reservoir's water flow into Coolsula, it will be through the lower layer of radioactive film flakes to the Pseudomonas contact with water degradation reaction and the product carbon dioxide and water. Carbon dioxide will be reused in photosynthesis of Pseudomonas to create a cycle that does not cause external pollution, while water is sent back to the reservoir along with the drain.
