The Azolla Biosystem is a highly flexible and scalable biological system that converts large quantities of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) into plant biomass without the need for arable land or nitrogen fertilizers.
Selected amounts of CO2 are permanently removed (sequestered) from the biological-atmospheric cycle as solid carbon products and the remaining biomass provides local renewable biofertilizer, livestock feed and biofuel.
Nitrogen-enriched water produced by the Biosystem can be used to fertilize hydroponics, aquaponics and algal growth in complementary systems, providing additional food and biofuel from both Azolla and algae.
The biosystem’s design is highly flexible, enabling its implementation at numerous varied locations including its immediate low-cost use in rural areas such as East Africa.
More sophisticated indoor units are tailored to local needs, including urban agriculture and biofuel production in more densely populated areas.
Azolla Stacking System
Our indoor Stacking System enables Azolla’s year-round growth under highly controlled conditions. This facilitates automation and global replication, resulting in reduces unit cost and access to multiple funding streams.
Stacking also increases the area of Azolla’s growth relative to its footprint by a combination of stacked growing trays and multi-storey buildings. This provides a high degree of flexibility at locations ranging from remote sites with large areas of available land, to town or city locations where the biosystem promotes urban agriculture and community participation.
The BioSystem is also designed to fully utilize the biomass and nitrogen-enriched water produced by the sequestration process using six modules that maximize its flexibility and scalability at different locations
The Azolla Hub
The Azolla Biosystem is housed in the Azolla Hub which can be replicated globally and modified, as required, at locations ranging from inner city sites to remote rural areas.
