Artificial Upwelling, our approach to carbon removal,
Derived from the Greek words phyto (plant) and plankton (made to wander or drift), phytoplankton are microscopic organisms that are the base of the ocean food chain (Source).
Phytoplankton are the foundation of the aquatic food web, the primary producers, feeding everything from microscopic, animal-like zooplankton to multi-ton whales. Small fish and invertebrates also graze on the plant-like organisms, and then those smaller animals are eaten by bigger ones (Source).
We deploy artificial upwelling pumps where the surface of the ocean is depleted of nutrients, far offshore and away from coral reefs.
“Tiny marine plants, known as phytoplankton, take carbon dioxide from the surface ocean to produce biomass. The biomass clumps together into particles, which then 👏 sink 👏 to 👏 the 👏 deep 👏 ocean.” Read more.
“fish push out a near constant stream of excrement, and that excrement holds some amount of carbon, which comes from the phytoplankton that the fish eat. Excrement falls in the form of heavy pellets, most of which make it to 👏 the 👏 ocean 👏 floor.” Read more.
“The research is an important step toward forecasting how much carbon will leave the ocean for the atmosphere as greenhouse gas carbon dioxide and how much will end up 👏 entombed 👏 in 👏 marine 👏 sediments.” Read more.
Our vision is to end the climate crisis, enabling Earth’s infinite wave power to slow global warming and return life to the sea.
