CO2 absorbing lamps

French biochemist Pierre Calleja and his team has built a “lamp” by using algae to absorb 150 times more carbon dioxide than a regular tree. The algae in the lamp absorbs CO2 and convert as much CO2 in a year as a regular tree does throughout its lifetime. These lamps are composed of a tube containing algae, …
