Climate change is the greatest threat we have ever faced

The ocean absorbs 38% of our carbon emissions every year. It is how nature balances our atmosphere.

Seaweed Generation's mission is to embrace the power of seaweed to reduce CO2 in the ocean. We believe that the wonders of seaweed can be coupled with technology for ocean rehabilitation of biodiversity, removal of pollution, and de-acidification, that will also create a fantastic base for durable carbon removal, and much, much more.

We're starting with an existing problem-seaweed to kick-start and learn as fast (and as responsibly) as we can. We call this Project AlgaRay.

Invasive seaweed plagues the Central Atlantic

Nutrient runoff, soil erosion and untreated sewage have caused the growth of the 'Great Sargassum Belt' that spans the Central Atlantic, from Central America to West Africa. This is not the same as the natural Sargasso Sea, a discrete habitat supporting numerous, sometimes unique species.

Since 2009, untold and increasing ecological damage has occurred every year as a result of this 'rogue' Sargassum moving into coastal waters and coming ashore. 2022 has set yet another record.

Project AlgaRay intercepts and sinks Sargassum for CO2 removal

The IPCC projects that we need 10 billion tonnes of CO2 removal a year by 2050 to stay below 2 degrees of warming.

Seaweed absorbs CO2 faster than the rainforests, and grows without land, water or fertilizer. It is one of very few possible pathways to billion tonne carbon dioxide removal.

The deep ocean is the largest carbon sink on earth

At depths of 2000m, carbon is locked out of the atmosphere for many hundreds, if not thousands of years.

The deep ocean contains 37 trillion tonnes of carbon. Adding all of the carbon produced during industrial times would be a 2% increase in deep ocean carbon.

Be part of the solution

To make a difference removal has to be on a gigatonne scale. There are very few pathways to gigatonne scale carbon removal. Each one of them must be piloted and explored further in the fight to rebalance our climate.
