About lamps, we always try to find those that give the perfect amount of light and match the interior design style we chose. Lamps give light to our homes, but imagine one lamp that does more: a lamp that can reduce pollution in our cities and homes. A new invention could make that possible. Scientists have created the algae lamp, a device which glows when CO2 is consumed from the air. French biochemist Pierre Calleja is the one who came up with the innovation. The scientist estimates that the algae lamp is able to absorb 200 times more CO2 than trees. According to his calculations, the lamp is able to absorb as much CO2 during a year as a tree does during a lifetime. As the algae absorb CO2 they keep growing. Due to photosynthesis they emit a soft glow. The algae lamp is also able to store energy. This energy can later be used to increase the lamp’s glow at night or in low-light situations.
The algae lamp uses a light and battery system. The surplus energy is stored in the batteries. At night, the stored energy is used to power up the light. Since the algae produce energy from carbon, sunlight is not required in the process.
The algae lamp is an environment friendly idea that can be used to reduce pollution in urban areas. It has a very modern look and purifies the air at the same time. Hopefully, in the near future, this lamp will be available to the general public. Would you buy such a device for your home?
