    About This Project

    We intend to test the efficacy of Spirulina platensis (Sp.) to pull carbon dioxide (CO2) out of the atmosphere via respiratory metabolism. Kombucha, which produces CO2 as a byproduct, will be grown in an enclosed environment next to a culture of Sp. A CO2 meter will be used to measure the CO2 levels produced by the kombucha culture in the presence and absence of Sp. Sp. concentration will be monitored via hemocytometer to correlate CO2 reduction with the amount of Sp. present.
