On several occasions we tell you about the benefits of installing green roofs and murals in homes and buildings in the city. However, an unusual proposal by British experts suggests that algae include buildings can also be an excellent choice.
For a while these agencies are used to produce biofuels, the benefit of being able to plant anywhere without demand of land that could be used for food production. With this in mind, an incredible proposal raises the possibility of including algae on the facade of buildings.
The idea, thought from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers in the UK, was generated from the need to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere. The mechanism is achieved by incorporating integrated pipes to buildings where the algae grow. This could be possible that a particular feature is feeding on greenhouse gases, making many tons are caught before causing global warming.
Furthermore, subsequently would enable algae to generate biofuels as clean and slightly harmful to the environment. Recall that to replace fossil fuels, many forms of alternative production using soybean, rapeseed or sunflower, and its impact less damaging to the planet but with the negative balance of productive land needed for cultivation. The algae, however, can be grown in any area, in addition to absorbing greenhouse gases.
For more striking than it may seem, the need for more sustainable production is leading to changes in the cities. Can you imagine the next buildings covered with algae? Perhaps in the not too distant future, this is a reality.
