Highlights

Wave-powered pumps grow phytoplankton that absorb and sequester CO2.

No electricity or land area is required to reduce CO2: Powered 100% by ocean wave energy.

Environmentally friendly: creates food for fish and other marine life, enhancing food security.

Massively Scalable, Low-Cost Carbon Capture that Revitalizes the Ocean

Artificial Upwelling Pumps Deployed Far Offshore and Away from Coral Reefs

We empower corporations and governments to achieve net-zero by providing a scalable, affordable nature-based marine methodology for carbon removal that does not require energy or land. Co-benefits include food security via the localized enhancement of phytoplankton, marine species growth, and the natural sequestration of CO2 in the deep sea, away from coral reefs and the coast.

How we do it

Build pumps.

Building Artificial Upwelling Pumps

We’ve spent the last fifteen years proving that the system works, that it can outlast the heavy abuse it will take in the open ocean, and that it can be assembled and deployed from any port city in the world.

Deploy and manage pumps at sea.

Artificial Upwelling Pump

We deploy our pumps in the ocean gyres, far offshore and away from coral reefs. Each pump is equipped with GPS and other sensors for tracking and monitoring remotely.

Measure the tons of carbon sea-questered by pumps.

Our pumps are deployed along with Biogeochemical Argos, sophisticated ocean instruments, for measuring carbon removal.
