Ocean Carbon Innovations: Exploring Biomass Sinking and Olivine Weathering
About The Webinar
Join us for the first episode of the Patch Project Showcase, a monthly webinar series highlighting innovative frontier Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) technologies. In this episode, we'll be featuring two ocean-based carbon removal technologies: Running Tide's biomass sinking system and Project Vesta's coastal carbon capture through chemical weathering. Representatives from both companies will speak about how their technologies are addressing one of the biggest challenges of our time and share their experiences.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- The potential of ocean-based carbon removal technologies to improve ocean health, combat ocean acidification and contribute to the gigaton-scale volume of carbon removal required by mid-century (IPCC).
- The main challenges these companies face in scaling up their technologies, particularly around MRV and potentially adverse localized impacts, and how they are working to overcome them.
- Insights into the main policy considerations and financing mechanisms involved in implementing ocean-based carbon removal technologies.
