    In the ever-worsening air pollution, there is a requirement for an eco-friendly system that can replenish the oxygen levels and remove the pollutants, providing people with clean air at least indoors.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Clean air has become almost a luxury in many cities of Pakistan, particularly the industrial zones. A system that can provide an air purifying, oxygen replenishing solution for the people can relieve them from breathing the bad air and help alleviate many pollution related disease.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   General society can benefit for the product. Especially people with respiratory problems like asthma and different allergies living in highly polluted regions and industrial zones. They can benefit from a clean indoor environment rather than spending on medical bills.
How will the solution works
    An air purifier with a built-in and replaceable filter and algal biofilm. The filter will remove the minute pollutant particles from the incoming air while the algal biofilm will be the source of oxygen in the system. The system will reduce the carbon dioxide concentration in the indoor environment and will introduce an oxygen rich air in the atmosphere. The product design will be compatible and aesthetic.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    The conventional air purifiers do not provide oxygen. There are also some systems that already utilize algal suspension for pure air but these system have high maintenance and acquire large space. In contrast the algal biofilm is compact and easily replaceable upon expiry and have simple production.
