THE FIRST STEP IN THE COLONIZATION OF THE OCEAN… BLOOM AN AQUATIC FARM FOR PHYTOPLANKTON
The water is going to redefine our future. By 2050, its level will get sixteen centimeters more than today and Asia is planned to be very affected by this phenomenon. Conceived to be first installed in the Indian Ocean, Bloom is an initiation of a link which purpose is to find an alternative issue on rising water due to global warming. This is why the concept of this large-scale project is to practice the culture of phytoplankton that absorb CO2 excesses and create O2.
Bloom is a semi-submersible center that can also alert in case of tsunamis. Moored to the seabed with a system of cables, it is a controller of water level and quality in dead zones of the oceans, rivers, coastal zones… Its goal is to regulate their O2 quantity by injecting phytoplankton making photosynthesis.
The project offers a living environment for the permanent staff of scientists and for phytoplankton in big aquariums. It is thus the first project created for these algae. It is a catalyst structure of their growing and in a way, it’s a matrix pocket of oxygen on Earth that can also desalinize seawater. Bloom wishes to be a sustainable answer by decreasing our carbon footprint while learning to live in accordance with our oceans. Every factory producing CO2 would have its own Bloom to testify of its interest for a better environment.
By giving us responsibilities for our CO2 consumption, we would become aware of our ecological impact on the planet. Cause resourceful water is the mother of our civilizations and we will always need it.
