Abstract

On the basis of well established principles and using well known experimental facts, flow diagrams have been presented for a minature plant, which, by employing appropriate sensing elements would maintain within narrow limits and with a mimimum of manual operation and supervision, the desired composition of the atmosphere in a closed respiratory system. This plant would in addition make full use of all wastes and utilize carbon dioxide and water present to synthesize formaldehyde from which dextrose carbohydrates would be generated by polymerization.
