French company Tyca, which usually works on aquarium and aquiculture projects, has announced the development of lamps that could capture CO2. The lamps are actually a sort of aquarium made of transparent walls that hold microscopic algae that eat CO2 and use solar light to produce O2, like plants. These algae are bioluminescent, which means they produce light. According to the company, one kilogram of these microalgae capture two kilograms of CO2, which means that one of these lamps, which holds 1.5 m3 of these algae could capture up to one ton of CO2 per year. They can even work under artificial light, which makes them suitable for parking lots. Science fiction? Only time will tell.
