Co2 is the turbo-booster for plant growth

Simply put: 6 Co2 + 6 H2O + Light Energy = C6H12O6 + 6O2. This is the photosynthesis formula that lets plants develop and grow the way we know it. Climeworks, a spin-off at the ETH Zürich that has recently won the VentureKick price, develops new technology that captures Co2 from radiant air. This technology can be used in greenhouses such as AquaFarm to feed plants with Co2 faster and more efficiently. – Think of this as the turbo booster for plants, simply by extracting the natural Co2 in the air and converting it into photosynthesis. C’est génial, no?
