Entry Description

Excessive emissions of carbon dioxide have led to increased global warming and extreme climate change, and nowadays industrialization is slowly affecting human health.
This project uses biotechnology to decompose the excessive carbon dioxide emissions through the use of bacteria and genetically modified Pothos aurea, and through a new filtering design process combined with carbon capture technology to achieve a vision of sustainable resources and purified air quality.
