Health device

Crowded city buses tend to have poor ventilation, especially in winter. As a result, carbon dioxide builds up in the interior space, causing temporary health problems such as lethargy and hypoxia in passengers. Poor ventilation also promotes the transmission of bacterial and viral infections. Therefore, bus passengers, and especially vulnerable groups such as new and expectant mothers, the elderly and young children, would benefit greatly from this ecological air-exchange system using the alga chlorella, which absorbs carbon dioxide and releases oxygen.

JURY STATEMENT

Clean air is a major risk factor in public transportation. This solution is highly versatile and can be retro-fitted to any vehicle. The scientific research phase was thorough, giving confidence that this product will work as intended. Given the current pandemic a solution for public transport that reduces the risk of viral transmission could not be more urgently needed.

WINNER STATEMENT

Great moment to let my dream come true!
