Alan Ohnsman of Forbes reports on a startup that is lowering ocean acidity and creating green hydrogen.
- Oceans are a carbon sink but as CO2 emissions rise, the oceans are becoming more acidic which harms sea life.
- Equatic, a Los Angeles-based startup, is looking to solve this issue with technology that removes CO2 from the ocean and converts it calcium carbonate while simultaneously producing clean hydrogen fuel.
- By reducing the amount of CO2 in seawater, the company is also freeing up space for the ocean to absorb even more carbon dioxide.
- Equatic will launch two pilot plants this year, one in LA and one in Singapore, and has recently received backing from Meta founder Mark Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan.
