Serbia’s pioneering ‘liquid 3’ photobioreactor: a new leaf in urban air purification

Thanks to this innovative "liquid tree", with its 158 gallons of water populated by powerful microalgae, the problem of air pollution can be tackled

In a groundbreaking step towards combating urban air pollution, Serbia introduces “LIQUID 3”, its first urban photobioreactor. Dubbed as a “liquid tree“, this innovative solution stands out with its 158 gallons of water teeming with powerful microalgae. The “LIQUID 3” is celebrated for its remarkable capability to capture up to 50 times more carbon dioxide than traditional trees, while simultaneously releasing fresh oxygen into the surrounding environment.

This revolutionary technology presents an effective solution in urban areas where planting actual trees is not feasible, thus contributing to the creation of greener and cleaner urban spaces. The bioreactor utilizes microalgae submerged in water to conduct photosynthesis, significantly reducing the carbon dioxide levels in the air.

The process is vastly more efficient than the natural photosynthesis performed by trees, offering an innovative and sustainable alternative to combat atmospheric pollution. The design of the bioreactor is optimized to maximize the production of active principles, leveraging structural diversification to enhance the efficiency of the process.

How this technology works

But how does “LIQUID 3” work? The microalgae, stimulated by controlled environmental stresses, synthesize secondary metabolites that contribute to air purification, providing a tangible benefit to the environment and public health. The more intense the stresses, the more significant the plant’s medicinal interest becomes.

Not only is the “LIQUID 3” technology a step forward in ecological innovation, but it also marks a significant advance in the fight against climate change and atmospheric pollution. Its potential to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and increase oxygen production helps mitigate the effects of greenhouse gases and improve air quality in urban areas.

However, while solutions like “LIQUID 3” offer hope for a more sustainable future, it’s critical to recognize that individual and collective actions are essential in effectively addressing the climate crisis. Adopting responsible environmental policies and practices, along with investments in innovative technologies like this, can help mitigate the impacts of climate change and create a healthier, more prosperous environment for future generations.
