OCEAN-BASED CARBON DIOXIDE REMOVAL

We use wave power to trigger phytoplankton blooms that quickly sequester CO2

Our approach, Artificial Upwelling, grows phytoplankton, microscopic plants, that like trees absorb CO2, but much faster.  When phytoplankton die, they sink to the deep ocean, a natural ocean carbon sequestration system.  The National Science Academy’s latest report on ocean-based carbon dioxide removal mentioned our company and our approach as a potential pathway for reducing CO2 from the atmosphere at scale.

How we do it

Build

Building Artificial Upwelling Pumps

Our Artificial Upwelling Pumps can withstand the rigors of the open ocean and be assembled anywhere.

Deploy

Artificial Upwelling Pump

We place our Pumps in ocean gyres, far from coral reefs, where the ocean is thousands of meters deep.

Monitor

Each Pump has GPS and other sensors for remote tracking and monitoring of ocean carbon removal.
