Talk Synopsis & Video Recording
After brief introduction of Ocean Networks Canada and its goals and solutions efforts on ocean health and ocean safety, the talk will focus on a new pilot project to sequester carbon in the deep ocean. Specifically, a project called Solid Carbon that combines existing technologies to capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and inject into sub-seafloor basaltic ocean crust where it will mineralize in a short period of time. Solid Carbon is currently in feasibility phase with three teams studying: integration options of the ocean engineering systems; details of conducting a demonstration; and regulatory, public, and investor acceptance.
