Reliable carbon dioxide and oxygen measurement and control are critical for algae production. That is why CO2Meter.com uses the most advanced CO2 and oxygen sensors in the world to build products designed to help maximize algae growth.
How much CO2 do algae need?
While there are many resources required for algae cultivation, carbon dioxide is vital. On average, studies suggest two pounds of CO2 on average is utilized per pound of algae growth. It is important to note, that this can be as low as one pound per pound, and as high as three pounds of CO2 per pound of algae.
Algae as carbon sequestration
While algae are found often in oceans or lakes, many researchers are hoping that you will be able to find these organisms more in coal-fired power plants. That's because, algae, which mostly reside in aquatic habitats, consume CO2 to conduct photosynthesis.
It is during this consumption that with AI-powered bioreactors, you can gain 400 times more efficiency when removing CO2 from the atmosphere than trees.
