Researchers from TU Dresden and Fraunhofer COMEDD are developing OLED lighting based bio-reactors that will be used to cultivate micro-algea that will help absorb CO2 using photosynthesis.

Those micro algae (or phototropic microorganisms) can transform carbon dioxide (CO2) into useful products such as proteins, dyes and other substances. OLED lighting may prove to enable a more effective process by providing the necessary lighting energy.

This 20-months project is being funded by the Saxon State Ministry with 670,000 euros.
