About

An eco-friendly air filter using bacteria to reduce CO2 levels

Ecoescape is a filter using chemoautrophic bacteria to eliminate CO2 and other particulate matter from the air. It was born from a search for a more effective solution to the issues of air pollution. The project has two different components. A biotechnology solution to understand the effectiveness of microorganisms in the filtering process and an engineering solution to build a device that maintains them. The current prototype is capable of reducing CO2 levels by 20%, but it has the potential to reach over 60%.
