Algae to depollute our cities? it's possible with urban ALGAE!

Green tubes

Even more than trees, it is microalgae or phytoplankton that clean up our atmosphere. They are at the base of the food chain and are an essential link of life on earth, nothing less!
If they only exist naturally in the sea or water bodies, why not locate them in our cities?
It's the idea of Bordeaux-based start-up URBAN ALGAE, currently in a crowdfunding campaign!

URBAN ALGAE's project is therefore to set up urban farms in the form of green walls to reduce air pollution in cities.

"One cubic metre of phytoplankton can clean up as much as the equivalent of 80 to 100 trees!"

In addition to being super-absorbers of CO2 which would clean the air in town and allow us to breathe better, these algae can also be marketed for the food or cosmetic sector because they are very rich in minerals and therefore very good for the body. Spirulina speaks to you?

URBAN ALGAE is in the middle of a crowdfunding campaign to finance its first installations.

Help them by participating in their KISSKISSBANKBANK campaign and contribute to making the air in our cities better :
