Calling All Divers, Micro Algae Scuba

Inadequate air supply is one of the top complaints from divers. They want to stay under water longer. There are rich marine resources, and therefore the combination of micro algae characteristics and a “rebreather” are applied in the Micro Algae Scuba concept.

When micro algae photosynthesize, they absorb carbon dioxide and convert it into carbohydrates, producing oxygen. The oxygen production of micro algae is 2 to 4 times that of tree oxygen production therefore applying micro algae characteristics with rebreathing technology in a biological scrubber to replace the original time-sensitive scrubber will enable longer dives with less weight.
