When To Change Your Algae

Posted by Jessica Ainsworth on

Because of the pandemic, most of us spend a lot of our days indoors. Many of us don’t know that we can breathe in polluted air from the safety of our homes. Poor indoor air quality containing gasses, dirt, and dust can lead to various conditions like lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and asthma.

In fact, 2019 indoor air pollution statistics reveal the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates it’s responsible for 4.3 million deaths throughout the world annually. For this reason, we developed an algae air purification system. This article will discuss what our organic air purifier does, when to change the algae, and what to do with it after.

What Is an Algae Air Purification System?

AlgenAir’s algae air purification system is a device that uses algae such as Spirulina to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen oxide (NO2), and sulfur oxide (SO) in the air and generate oxygen through photosynthesis.

The AlgenAir organic air purifier, called the aerium, contains an algae culture vase, a lighting unit to emit light to the culture fluid, and fresh algae. Each device removes CO2 and produces oxygen as effectively as 25 indoor house plants. Also, it filters out common home allergens like bacteria and pollen.

When Should You Change Your Algae

Our purifier works best when the algae is fresh. Absorbing too much CO2, NO2, and SO saturates the algae and requires changing every one to two months, depending on pollution levels and ambient conditions.

Changing the algae in the air purifier ensures efficient growth and food production. While the system is low maintenance and easy to use, we offer an accompanying subscription service for changing the algae. We base the program on your machine’s unique growth cycle.

This process is not harmful to the environment in any way and does not produce any unnecessary waste.

How To Dispose of Algae

Various industries have been discovering the many advantages of using algae, especially in biofuel and energy sources. However, this versatile aquatic plant also offers many benefits for homeowners.

For instance, when we clean out the old algae from your purifier, you can use it as fertilizer. Using algae as a fertilizer is a relatively new practice, but below are some reasons why it’s been gaining popularity.

  • Rich in nutrients like potassium, iron, and magnesium
  • Releases macronutrients and micronutrients into the soil after decomposing
  • Reduces soil loss
  • Keeps gardens sustainable

Improve Your Air Quality Now

Indoor air pollution impacts the lives of millions of people worldwide. Too much CO2, NO2, and SO in the air can cause death and other pulmonary complications. One of the best ways to protect your loved ones from harm is to invest in an algae purification system. It absorbs harmful gasses and turns them into oxygen, providing homes with naturally clean air, completing your indoor ecosystem.
