Algaenate - A non-chemical solution for managing and reducing toxic blue green algal blooms
Produce Design BSc Final Year Project.
Algaenate: a portable, easily deployable surface mixing pump and aerator that prevents and reduces problematic toxic blue-green algal blooms from forming in lakes and ponds. It does this by using a jet of water to aggravate the surface of the water, making the conditions inhospitable for algae to survive. The Algaenate also mixes the deeper layers of the water, which encourages the growth of a beneficial species of phytoplankton, essential for a healthy food chain.
