New Bioreactor Pulls CO2 from Air

More Effective Than 400 Trees Source:  Hypergiant Industries  Converts CO2 into Biofuel This is breakthrough new energy innovation to combat Climate Change.  The Eos Bioreactor pulls carbon dioxide from the atmosphere with greater efficiency than 400 trees.  The footprint is only 3x3x7 feet.  The creator is Hypergiant Industries of Texas. Algae & Tubes The machine is filled with tubes that contain algae.  The algae type chlorella vulgaris is able to absorb more CO2 than any other plant.  The algae consumes the CO2 and converts it into biofuels that can be harvested.  There's a great deal of intelligence behind the process. Artificial and Machine Intelligence Hypergiant Industries say their Eos Bioreactor is more efficient than trees - 400 times more effective in pulling out CO2 from the air in the same unit area.  They use artificial and machine intelligence to constantly monitor and manage air flow, amount, type of light, temperature, ph, biodensity and other fac

Going Solar with Gold

University of Californa - Berkeley Creates Solar Fuel from Gold + Bacteria Source:  University of California - Berkeley The Midas Touch University of California Berkeley researchers have just demonstrated a novel and efficient means of creating biofuels.  They've placed gold nanoclusters that absorb light into a bacterium.  A biohybrid results that produces a high yield of chemical products like biofuels.  It's a new source of sustainable energy. High Value Biohybrid The biohybrid captures sunlight and carbon dioxide to make chemicals useful both on earth and in space.  It's a breakthrough discovery and has just been published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology. Artificial Photosynthesis Producing Solar Fuels The bacterium is photosensitive and is named Moorella thermoacetica.  It has an appetite for gold.  The researchers feed it a nanocluster of 22 gold atoms.  The gold slips through the cell wall.  With great efficiency, it produces solar fuels through
