Technology Owner: Project Vesta
About: A process that utilizes the mineral olivine that can absorb atmospheric CO2 from the ocean and stabilizes it as limestone on the seafloor. Ocean waves naturally erode the olivine, increasing its surface area, which means that the project could potentially store large amounts of CO2 for a low cost.
Application: Atmospheric Capture/Utilization
Type: Permanent Sequestration
Utilization: Geologic Storage
Location: San Francisco, California, USA
