Carbon dioxide is an excess in our environment and is one of the leading causes of Ozone depletion in our atmosphere. A Chlorophyll based CO2 filter can be used to purify and preserve the clean air in our homes and the industrial environment by capturing CO2 from the ambient air with a powerful fan through our chlorophyll filter. Harnessing a controlled wind flow through our design will ensure a lower CO2 concentration in the air, therefore contributing to the preservation of a sustainable environment. Surplus CO2 in the atmosphere is a substantial problem because of vector diseases, extreme weather conditions and the poor air quality it catalyzes.
