Green Shadows Commercial has developed a process for treating industrial wastes, in particular acid mine drainage. This technology has the potential to revolutionise the waste water treatment industry and is in the process of being commercially developed.
Ocean Nourishment Corporation (ONC) is a leading provider of ocean carbon solutions and advisory services for carbon intensive industries. ONC was established in 2004 to develop carbon dioxide removal techniques that transfer carbon from the atmosphere to the deep ocean carbon store. The company employs modellers, scientists and engineers that work together to identify suitable sites and techniques for deploying Ocean Nourishment technology in the world’s oceans.
Ocean Nourishment is a nature inspired innovation, adopting the principles of biomimicry to support ocean ecosystems and provide both biosphere and economic returns. Through the purposeful introduction of limiting macronutrients the process employs the services of ocean plants (ecosystem services) to capture waste carbon from the surface ocean and atmosphere, in doing so enhancing marine productivity from the base of the marine food chain. Successful deployment in carefully selected deep ocean sites would allow large carbon intensive industries to reduce their carbon footprint and increase their economic competitiveness in an increasingly carbon constrained economy.
