Param Jaggi Uses Algae To Convert Carbon Dioxide Into Oxygen, Param Jaggi, a 17-year-old high school student received a sustainability award from the United States Environmental Protection Agency for his anti-pollution invention.

Millions of high school students across the world compete in annual science fairs.

One thousand five hundred winners from sixty-five countries are then selected to compete in the IntelĀ® International Science and Engineering Fair – the world’s largest science fair for pre-college students.

The Environmental Protection Agency evaluates participants green gadgets, and environmentally friendly products, and recognizes one student with the prestigious Sustainability Award.

Jaggi’s invention is a bioactive energy carbon dioxide filter that inserts into a vehicle’s exhaust pipe. The filter is a transparent gas canister with gas permeable membranes as entry and exist ports.

Carbon dioxide enters the canister and passes through a solution containing live algae. Through photosynthesis the carbon dioxide is converted into oxygen and released into the air.

“It puts us a step forward in society, where we could decrease our effect on the carbon imprint and still do it at a very consumer friendly cost and benefit,” said Param.
