At the age of 23, Adán Ramírez received great international recognition for having created solar panels that, in addition to producing energy, purify the air.
Mexican pride: A young man created solar panels that also purify the air
Mexican talent and ingenuity never ceases to amaze us. Proof of this is that, a few years ago, a young Mexican named Adán Ramírez managed to create solar panels that, unlike common panels, not only generate electricity but at the same time purify the air.
Thanks to this, Adán Ramírez (who is also the technology director of the GREEN Fluidics company, which is in charge of distributing the panels) won the 2019 Innovator of the Year award thanks to this project.
This recognition took place during the third edition of Innovators Under 35 LATAM, an award in which the organizations’ Technology Review and Opinno highlight the work of Latin American entrepreneurs. But what is this product about?
Solar biopanels, more than a common panel
According to the GREEN Fluidics company, the idea that originated this invention came from nature itself. And it is that it is about solar bio panels made from microalgae and nanoparticles that, while generating electrical energy, are capable of retaining carbon dioxide (CO2).
In addition, it is estimated that their life expectancy is between 10 and 12 years and that it decreases up to 1.5 tons each year. Another advantage of these bio panels is that they can be placed anywhere; they even function as roofs, dividers, or windows. They also have a trilateral shape and a greenish tone that are extremely attractive to the eye.
In this way, the solar panels created by Ramírez have become a great option to take care of the environment. And it is that every day the concern about climate change and the depletion of natural resources that make human life and that of other organisms possible.
Therefore, it is essential to find alternatives that generate the least negative impact on the environment. And without a doubt, GREENfluidics solar panels are a great option.
