Plants are the best
option for capturing CO2

They naturally extract CO2 from the air and use it as feed. The more CO2 plants absorb, the less CO2 remains trapped in the atmosphere.

As plants decompose, CO2
is released back to the air

If left alone, plants are eaten by other organisms and releasing the carbon back to the carbon cycle within months.

Anoxic conditions slow decomposition

In anoxic waters, plants decompose extremely slowly, effectively storing the carbon much longer.

The Black Sea
is the ideal location

It is the largest anoxic body of water on earth, 2km deep, surrounded by fertile lands. The Black Sea is the optimal environment allowing affordable, environmentally safe, gigaton scale carbon removal in this decade.
