Seaweed Generation

Jolly Harbour, Antigua and Barbuda

Sinks invasive seaweed to the bottom of the ocean, locking up carbon for hundreds of years

Seaweed generation uses robots to sink invasive seaweed into the deep ocean, locking away carbon for hundreds of years. Sinking Sargassum seaweed also helps prevent environmental disasters caused by the seaweed when it hits coasts, where it can also severely impact human health and livelihoods. It has the potential to scale to millions of tonnes of carbon removal.
