The ocean's biological carbon pump is the world's most powerful carbon removal system. It moves 2 billion tons of carbon from the fast to slow cycle every year
The atmosphere and the upper ocean are key components of the fast carbon cycle. CO₂ is constantly moving between the atmosphere and the ocean's surface.
As our limestone buoys float, the limestone slowly dissolves, restoring ocean alkalinity and, leveraging ocean gravity, the seaweed plant plunge after maturity (14 meters, 1T after 4 months),
Moving carbon from the fast cycle to the slow.
The carbon embodied in the buoy and algae will either be buried in ocean sediments or consumed by deep-sea marine life.
