Summary

Australian company Ocean Nourishment have pioneered the scientific exploration of macro nutrient enhancement of primary productivity (ocean phytoplankton) in the world oceans for enhanced carbon dioxide removal (CDR). Their work has focused on large-scale carbon sequestration and also the co-benefits of reduced surface ocean acidification and enhanced protein from small pelagic fisheries.

Researcher Profile

ONC has pioneered the scientific exploration of macro nutrient enhancement of primary productivity in the world oceans. Since 2007 the founders of ONC have lead the development of this scaleable ocean carbon solution or negative emission technology from its head quarters in Sydney, Australia.
The Ocean Nourishment founders come from diverse backgrounds covering engineering, marine science, environmental science and business finances. Together ONC has developed a solution for the restoration of the world’s oceans and critical drawdown of legacy carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
