The Planktos Path to Carbon Profits and Climate Redemption

Planktos Inc. is now working with US and European marine research teams to plan and launch significant ocean iron fertilization projects in the fall of 2005. Initial efforts will be modest in scope and research-intensive, but still designed to verifiably sequester carbon tonnage per voyage in the 6~7 digit range.

We approach this work a unique array of qualifications:

  • Years of experience in the basic science of the field and an internationally well connected staff
  • Collaborative arrangements and working relationships with internationally recognized marine science project partners required for certification
  • Sustainable resource maximization plan designs
  • Expertise in resource value computation and certification procedures
  • Market access for resource commodification and trade
  • Experience in structuring all preceding factors into viable binding business plans
Ocean Restoration Credits
Countless scientific papers now document the efficacy of blue water ferric fertilization in massively boosting surface plankton growth, photosynthetic CO2 sequestration, and ocean productivity as the local food chain is recharged. (See our "Reforesting the Sea" paper for details on the science and simple technology involved.)

The challenge and opportunity of marine bio-sequestration as a negotiable carbon offset source now depend almost entirely upon the credible quantification of the effect. "How much sinks how far?" is essentially the only significant metric for carbon credit certification, and Planktos now can reliably resolve that equation with a combination of satellite telemetry, tracking buoy spectroscopy, and submarine filtration traps.

This "marine forest" technology is now capable of retiring millions of tons of CO2 in very short time frames (measured in months instead of decades) and once the carbon complexes (aka "marine snow") reach 100 meters or more, they are scientifically recognized as sequestered for centuries.

Properly managed, these new iron-catalyzed "marine forest" carbon sinks not only offer an ecologically sound method to restore the deep oceans' lost productivity, they can generate gratifyingly profitable carbon offset portfolios for insightful investors. This strategy not only generates ancillary economic and environmental benefits, it cuts long-term risks and boosts investment return by maximizing carbon credit value.
