With BioBombola we wish to invite individuals, families and communities to cultivate a domestic algae garden.
BioBombola is a pioneering gardening product that invites individuals, families and communities to cultivate a domestic algae garden, a sustainable source of vegetable proteins. BioBombola absorbs carbon dioxide and oxygenates the domestic environment more effectively than common plants while fostering a fulfilling daily interaction with nature.
Each BioBombola is composed of a single customized photobioreactor, a one metre tall lab grade glass container, filled with 15 litres of living photosynthetic Spirulina strain (a type of cyanobacteria, which is a family of single-celled microbes that are often referred to as blue-green algae). The microalgae grow in liquid culture medium with nutrients.
The BioBombola system includes an air piping network and a small air-pump that constantly stirs the medium. The gentle bubbling keeps the algae afloat, aids oxygenation and produces a calming sound that emanates with the fresh oxygen in the surrounding environment.
BioBombola can be easily assembled and dismantled, with zero waste, during the production, assembly and dismantling phases. The photobioreactor adapts to any environment and any ceiling height, and it should be installed in a spot with direct sunlight or next to a grow lamp.
