Making buildings sustainable with the help of microbes
LIAR aims to change the impact of buildings in our environment through the development of innovative building blocks able to use significant resources such as water, air or sunlight to produce oxygen, proteins and biomass. The technology employed converts the chemical energy of a pool of microorganisms into electricity.
