Biohaus from Mars to Earth
Biohaus project is raising awareness to the inescapable importance of biodesign and biomanufacturing on Earth from the innovation-generating perspective of Mars. In this half year we have created an inflatable bioreactor for algae cultivation.
Our bioreactor helps to keep alive and produce cyanobacteria, or microalgae, which are among the oldest living organisms on the planet. After refining the algae, it can be used to produce biofuels that can even power aircrafts.
We have designed two types of bioreactors, one combining the glass bioreactor familiar from the laboratory with a household appliance or demijohn. In addition, you need a starter kit. The system can also be connected to solar panels.
