The goal of our project is to solve the problem of carbon dioxide (CO2) by using
engineered E. coli to fix CO2 emitted from industries. To
achieve our goal, we designed a device that we will upscale our project to be used
on fields and aim to integrate the device into industrial IGCC system.
Our device is divided into three main parts: a bioreactor, a medium tank and a
collection tank. Carbon dioxide fixation process takes place in bioreactor
which contains our engineered E.coli.
In order to maintain the optimal conditions, the bioreactor consists of a pH
meter and a thermometer. Besides, a CO2 sensor is mounted at the top
of the lid to sense to CO2 concentration of the gas. All of the data
will be transmitted to our IoT system so that we could online monitoring
conditions of the bioreactor.
Here we are going to show how does our device works in the video below ! We
incubated our engineered E. coli in M9 xylose solution and successfully
implemented IoT system with our device.
