Developed in partnership with the French start-up Fermentalg, the Carbon Sink improves air quality thanks to the power of microalgae. The algae capture fine particulates (PM10), nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and excess CO2 and transform them into green energy. In cities, a carbon sink can absorb the equivalent of the pollution emitted by 150 vehicles.
Tests of the system on the INERIS test bench, which is unique in Europe, showed reductions in the levels of fine particulates of about 66% to 99%, and of nitrogen dioxide of 76% to 97% depending on the configuration.
Pollution and carbon sink is part of the AirAdvanced range of solutions.
