ADVANCED LIFE SUPPORT: AIR REVITALIZATION


Efforts toward the development of Advanced Life Support Systems for Air Revitalization inlcude: the use of microalgal bioreactors, higher plants, and electrochemical techniques for the generation of oxygen from carbon dioxide; the use of advanced sorbents, membrane and electrochemical methods for separating carbon dioxide from the atmosphere; the use of catalytically active regenerable sorbents and photocatalytic oxidation methods for trace organic contaminant control; and vapor phase catalytic oxiation of ammonia. References to these methods are provided below.
