Statement: Department of Commerce, NOAA, and Biden-Harris Administration Invest in Ocean-Based Climate Solutions Research
The U.S. Department of Commerce and NOAA have announced $24 million for projects that will expand the government’s potential tools to confront the climate crisis by researching ocean-based carbon dioxide removal strategies, as part of President Biden’s Investing in America agenda.
More Than 200 Scientists Call for Accelerated and Expanded Ocean-Based Carbon Dioxide Removal Research
More than 200 prominent scientists from around the world released an open letter calling for accelerated and expanded ocean-based carbon dioxide removal research to confront the ocean and climate crises
Ocean Visions releases statement on U.S. Department on Energy Initiatives to Scale Carbon Removal
Europe-Based Startup PRONOE Wins Ocean Visions’ Innovation Prize at Student-Led MIT Climate & Energy Competition
Ocean Visions awards $15,000 to ocean-based carbon dioxide removal company PRONOE as part of the student-led MIT Climate & Energy Prize
Ocean Visions has released the latest in a series of digital road maps designed to accelerate responsible research and development for ocean-based solutions to the climate crisis. Representing the sixth in a growing series, the new road map on microalgae cultivation is intended to catalyze action around the most critical needs to safely advance the field.
The Ocean Visions Biennial Summit 2023 will be held from April 4-6, 2023, at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, Georgia, and with online attendance options. Ocean Visions welcomes a diverse community of participants—including scientists, academics, policymakers, entrepreneurs, innovators, and funders—to discuss the sharing of knowledge and solutions to critical challenges at the ocean-climate nexus.
Ocean Visions Develops Framework to Guide Research on Seaweed Cultivation and Sinking for Carbon Dioxide Removal
Ocean Visions and partner Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) have released a framework intended to guide the research needed to assess the efficacy and impacts of cultivating and sinking macroalgae (seaweed) for the purpose of sequestering carbon in the deep ocean and locking it away from the atmosphere as a means to help slow climate change.
In a significant response to urgent climate-related threats, a new international center headquartered at Georgia Aquarium, endorsed by the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, will support versatile, collaborative solutions to improve the health of the world’s oceans.
Ocean Visions Supports Development of Model Federal Laws to Facilitate Responsible Ocean-Based Carbon Dioxide Removal Research
Ocean Visions is partnering with the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia University on a new project to develop model federal laws to facilitate responsible research and development of ocean-based carbon dioxide removal (CDR) technologies.
The Ocean Visions Launchpad was created to help innovators competing for the $100M XPRIZE Carbon Removal, funded by Elon Musk and the Musk Foundation. Launchpad targets teams who are pursuing ocean-based carbon dioxide removal (CDR) pathways.
Additional Ventures is partnering with Ocean Visions and a consortium of philanthropic funders to announce the Ocean Alkalinity Enhancement (OAE) Engineering Award. We invite concise pre-proposals to develop prototypes of new tools, technologies, and processes that could enable safe, cost-efficient, and scalable OAE.
