Bangalore, India based NuAlgi Nanobiotech has launched a new product, called NuAlgi,to clean rivers. The product will not only cleans a polluted water body without affecting its ecology, but also adds nutrients to it, increasing the food content for fish.
NuAlgi, which can be used to clean a pond, a lake or a river, is available in powder form which needs to be dissolved in water in a container before draining into the water body. With the use of NuAlgi, all polluted lakes and rivers can be restored without harming the water life.
Within 15 minutes of dissolving NuAlgi in the water, diatom algae is released. These growing algae absorb nutrients and carbon dioxide from the water and produce oxygen by photosynthesis. The oxygen released helps aerobic bacteria break down the organics and convert the pollutants to base constituents, all this minus the stink that anaerobic decomposition generates. The diatoms are eaten by zooplanktons that are, in turn, consumed by fish. The ecosystem of the water body is maintained and observed by the presence of healthy fish, which are fit for human consumption.
