Entry Description

Aquatic Reviver aims to provide a low-cost and effective solution to eutrophication. With the biomimicry of salps,aquatic Reviver does so by replacing the oxygen consuming decomposition of excessive algae. Driven by silver-zinc batteries, Aquatic Reviver absorbs and crushes excessive algae, dead aquatic creatures and feces. Decomposed from algae, algal colloids then help gelatinize the debris to make it dense enough to sink. Additionally, like a mobile accumulator, the cellulose decomposed from algae stores extra electric charge for motors to enable Aquatic Reviver to keep operating.
