After spending years studying natural solar bio-energy in Caribbean coral reefs, Walter H. Adey, PhD. developed Algal Turf Scrubber, a biomimetic system that generates a fast-growing polyculture of locally adopted algae species atop a 3D screen surface that can then be harvested for a variety of uses, from mitigating pollution from agricultural run-off to sequestering carbon.
AskNature is an web-based living Biomimicry encyclopedia that hopes to use online dissemination of knowledge to make biomimetic solutions easily available so as to be applied to some of humanity’s most pressing challenges.
