Different CO2 Delivery system....

I posted some of this to the DIY forum,
but it might be more appropriate here.

I've been investigating CO2 permeable membranes. This is a fairly new line of research. Quite a bit of funding is being put into it by the DOE as a possible "fix" for cleaning up atmospheric CO2.

One of the researchers I contacted thought it would be possible to increase the atmospheric concentration of CO2 from .3% to around 1%.

My question is, if I can produce air with the higher 1% CO2 level by running it through one of these filters, is there a delivery method I could use with this high CO2 air that would get the CO2 into the water and to the plants?

Your new air will give like 14 ppm if you get alot of higher co2 diffused really efficently. With airstone/glass diffusor, your agitation will be high because you will need to use a large volume of air. So you may end up with lower co2 I dont think that you can diffuse in a way that will give increased c02 unless you want a 90 foot long inline reactor.
