4O2‧tree

Microalgae can provide four times effectiveness than general plants in absorbing carbon dioxide and producing O2. The applications of microalgae become a new issue for decreasing carbon emissions. 4O2‧tree is a new microalga-based energy system. It can not only cultivate microalgae but also absorb CO2. The mature microalgae can be collected in the lower container. They can be advanced processed and become bio-energy. Besides, 4O2‧tree is portable. People could install them around houses, factories and on the roads. They also can be moved and stored in safe place when the natural disaster happens.
