Solid Carbon is a negative emissions technology (NET) that will remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere and provide permanent sequestration in the world’s largest reservoirs for CO2 sequestration — ocean basalt. This proposal establishes the first system off Canada’s west coast where basalt is ubiquitous and real-time ocean environmental monitoring exists, operated by Ocean Networks Canada (ONC). ONC operates world-leading ocean observatories with a vision to enhance life on Earth by providing knowledge and leadership that delivers solutions for science, society, and industry. The proposed Solid Carbon solution brings six separate, yet proven, technologies into a single system to deliver this NET. As with ONC's other developments, this system will be designed, built, and operated through the collaboration of experts and community partners, including Indigenous organizations. This will ensure that the long-term delivery of systems to the global market can be met by a diverse and inclusive expert workforce.
