Solaga is a Berlin-based biotech startup which specializes in the development of innovative solutions for air filtrations and regenerative energy production based on algae biofilms.
Microalgae are capable of fixing and rendering harmless air pollutants such as carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide. Current findings show that microalgae biofilms in particular are also capable of absorbing nitrogen oxides. Solaga is currently working on the further development of a microalgae biofilter concepWt to also test the filtration of VOCs and SO2.
In biofilters, microalgae biofilms operate with low energy consumption and are suitable for cleaning off low concentrations. They thus offer enormous potential for urban and biological air purification. In addition, they can be attached to facades in a space-saving and effective way.
