ecoLogicStudio and the Otrivin Actions to Breathe Cleaner initiative are currently experimenting with innovative nature-based solutions to mitigate the impact of urban air pollution on children’s breathing health.
The Otrivin Air Lab project will be resident at the Building Centre to showcase EcoLogicStudio's prototyping of a biodegradable plastic packaging made with the by-product of the air purification process.
Through the application of the PhotoSynthetica technology, pioneered by ecoLogicStudio, this project tests the feasibility to build a circular production workflow, where CO2 and urban air pollution are re-metabolized into fresh biomass. This is then harvested and transformed into bioplastic, biofilament and finally into a new biodegradable packaging product, locking in the CO2 into a new virtuous material cycle.
Other technologies such as algorithmic design and 3D printing are integrated in the fabrication process to eliminate the production of waste and to optimise material performance, natural biodegradability and industrial scalability.
