Microalga Scuba / Diving Equipment

Microalga Scuba
Microalga Scuba

There are many diving enthusiasts in the world. From the data collected, inadequate air supply is found as one of the causes for the occurrence of diving accidents. There are rich marine resources, and therefore the combination of microalgae characteristics and a "rebreather" are applied in the design. The oxygen production of microalgae is 2 to 4 times that of tree oxygen production, and therefore applying microalgae characteristics to design a biological scrubber to replace the original time-sensitive scrubber will allow diving enthusiasts to enjoy diving, and at the same time, maintain equipment safety and help to reduce carbon emissions.
