Device

Oxygen Factory creates fresh air indoors! It is a chlorella based air treatment device that produces Oxygen, reduces Carbon Dioxide and purifies the air. The existing devices for air quality improvement – air-purifiers, air-washers and air-humidifiers clean and improve the existing air in the premises, that doesn’t substitute ventilation and refreshing the air from the outside, contaminated with pollutions or/and allergens. In opposite, Oxygen Factory produces oxygen itself and, what is crucial – consumes carbon dioxide, while cleaning the air from dangerous chemical gases. With Oxygen Factory installed, building can exist as enclosed but still very healthy system.

Performance

Oxygen Factory purifies the most common air contaminants such as VOC`s, allergens, harmful gases, ultrafine particles (PM 2.5, PM 10). The device is able to completely purify the air in a room of 40 square meters in 3 hours, while the composition of the air will be similar to fresh forest air. But the most importantly it consumes CO2 from the air and produces O2 in amount that equals 12 trees or 300-500 home plants daytime oxygen productivity. According the mathematical calculation, Oxygen Factory column produces 800 gr of oxygen per day that equals 2 wood acres or 12 trees approximately and covers 100% of daily oxygen consumption of one person.

Use features

Oxygen Factory is a combination of live organisms and technology. Chlorella is the most important part of device. It is a genus of single-cell green algae belonging to the phylum Chlorophyta. Chlorella vulgarius is a basic algae that can be found almost all over the world, have no toxic or negative influence on humans or animals. It`s well-known as a food supplement, it is rich with phytonutrients, including amino acids, chlorophyll, beta-carotene, potassium, phosphorous, biotin, magnesium and the B-complex vitamins. For the proper performance of Oxygen Factory requires easy bi-weekly maintenance: automatic draining of part of the liquid by pressing the button, then adding the same amount of fresh water to the column and feeding algae with capsule (capsules can be bought online or in specialized stores). The manipulation takes no more than 10 minutes and provides an ideal operation of device, which is controlled by inbuilt sensors. Column is equipped with carbon dioxide sensor that controls the air quality in real time. Chlorella is easy to recover in the event of system malfunction. User can easily place capsules with algae concentrate in water and the column automatically resumes operation that will be confirmed by carbon dioxide sensors.

Inspiration

In 60-s Russian scientists invented a closed ecosystem ‘BIOS-3’, aimed to secure a normal human existence inside the hermetically sealed space. The development of this system was inspired by human desire to reach the outer space and master planets with unsatisfactory human life conditions. The crucial element of ‘BIOS-3’ ecosystem were chlorella algae that were recycling air, breathed by humans, absorbing carbon dioxide and replenishing it with oxygen through photosynthesis. In addition to algae, higher plants were used in the system for cleaning the air. Today, when many cities sink in smog and people suffer from bad air conditions it is a time to rethink the cosmonauts ecosystem as a way to maintain a human wellbeing and life on mother planet Earth. Oxygen Factory is based on scientific research of chlorella algae that will help to improve air quality in any space.
