We aim to become a leader in enhancing healthy and sustainable built environments. Our regenerable technology benefits the broader society, environment, and economy through improved air quality, energy cost savings, CO2 sequestration, and renewable biofuel production.
Our Value Propositions:
Our biochromic window technology improves indoor air quality by reducing CO2 and producing oxygen-rich air quality, which is recognized as being critical to the occupants' health and well-being.
The system helps achieve net zero energy, net zero carbon building practice, and LEED/WELL/Fitwel certifications.
The superior photosynthetic performance of the microalgae integration allows high efficient, nature-based decarbonization, which helps carbon credits.
Broader Societal Impact:
Decarbonization. Microalgae account for approximately 10% of the biomass of terrestrial plants, but they sequester more than half of the world's CO2 emissions. For example, when all the commercial buildings in the US (approximately 6 million buildings) are enclosed with biochromic windows, it can sequester 2.5Gt CO2 annually, which is more than 50% of the US's CO2 emission in 2020.
Resource Conservation. Biochromic window retrofitting reduces energy bills by reducing heating, cooling, lighting, and ventilating buildings.
Food and Biofuel Production. Microalgae biomass can turn into foods for all of life and renewable energy. For example, microalgae windows from all the commercial buildings in the US can produce 1.4Gt biomass, which can be used for food and energy sources.
Typical commercial buildings enclosed with microalgae systems can sequester 2.5Gt CO2, given 6 million commercial buildings available in the US.
Microalgae harvest from urban framing using existing commercial buildings can feed 1.4 billion people (the estimate is based on a Spirulina's 1g/l growth rate).
