Each Autonomous Upwelling Pump can grow enough phytoplankton to remove approximately 250 tons of carbon dioxide per year. We can produce and deploy enough AUPs to meet your CO2 removal or carbon-negative credit goals.
We verify CO2 removed with biogeochemical Argo robotic floats, powered by OTEC batteries that allow us to take daily gradient readings from the surface to 1000 meters depth, providing high-resolution data sent via satellite to CLS Argo. There, the data is quality controlled where third parties can independently verify results.
We’ve engineered AUPs to continuously, passively, and autonomously operate for 80 to 100-years. We’ve designed them to work physically and biologically to free-drift in the ocean. 99% of the AUP is submerged, protecting it from hazardous weather, and we’ve built the buoys to never go above 3 meters in height, dunking under stormy 20-meter waves. If needed, we’ve set aside funds to repair, recover and replace AUPs.
Our climate and ocean positive technology grows phytoplankton which are the base of the ocean food chain. Based on the amount of phytoplankton grown, we estimate 1.5 tons of additional wild-caught fish per year per AUP.
Our climate and ocean positive technology is scalable and will provide thousands of jobs:
Our vision is to end the climate crisis, enabling Earth’s infinite wave power to slow global warming and return life to the sea.
