Plant monitoring device
A plant monitoring device according to an embodiment is provided with a determination unit and a display processing unit. The determination unit compares a first process value obtained in a time series from the first point of a subject being monitored in the plant and a corresponding limit value to determine the time when the first process value exceeds the limit value. The display processing unit causes a display device to display, in a time series, the first process value within a time range defined on the basis of the time obtained by the determination unit, and the corresponding limit value.

Process for fixing carbon and for energy generation
The invention disclosed here describes a process for energy generation in power plants by combustion of aquatic biomass. In an advantageous embodiment, bacteria are used for this purpose. In a particularly advantageous embodiment, cyano bacteria and/or E. coli bacteria are used for this purpose. In a further advantageous embodiment, the bacteria comprise a plasmid which produces chlorophyll. The chlorophyll and the metabolism of the bacteria produce sugar and various high-energy compounds such as hydrogen, alcohols, proteins and fats. The bacteria are capable of utilizing the sunlight much more efficiently than plants, for example energy crops or algae. The biomass produced by means of bacteria is utilized thermally. Beforehand, chemical commodities and fine chemicals can also be obtained.

Plant lighting system
Lighting systems for providing supplemental light to plants to facilitate plant growth and/or to provide supplemental lighting in situations where sunlight is insufficient. Lighting systems may use LED technology to deliver specific wavelengths of light to maximize utilization of the supplemental light for photosynthesis. By delivering light having one or more specific wavelengths, it is possible to use a light that consumes relatively little power (e.g., about 10 watts or less) while providing sufficient supplemental light to facilitate healthy plant growth. Lighting systems may include a light-sensor to facilitate control of the amount of light provided. For example, a light-sensor may be used to automatically adjust the amount (e.g., intensity or duration) of light provided when the amount of ambient light available to the plant dips below a predetermined level.
