Blue Carbon Info Session

March 22 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Join us on Tuesday, March 22, to learn about blue carbon and hear from start-ups with products that reduce or store carbon in the ocean sector or blue economy.

Blue carbon is the term for carbon captured by the world’s ocean and coastal ecosystems. Our ocean and coasts provide a natural way of reducing the impact of greenhouse gases on our atmosphere through sequestration of carbon.

 

Keynote

Ken is a senior scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution who specializes in the study of natural and manmade radionuclides in the ocean. He has served as chair of the marine chemistry and geochemistry department at WHOI, as executive scientist of the US joint global ocean fluxes planning and data management office and two years as an associate program director at the US National Science Foundation, division of ocean sciences, chemical oceanography program. In 2009, Ken was elected fellow of the American Geophysical Union and in 2011, he was noted as the top cited ocean scientist by the Times Higher Education for the decade 2000-2010.

 

Start-ups

Mo AlGermozi, CEO & President, Graphite Innovation & Technologies (grapheneenterprise.ca) – Graphite Innovation & Technologies (GIT) has an innovative marine coating that is environmentally friendly and easily cleaned. It does not require the application of primer underlayers and is proven to reduce vessel costs and emissions.

Mike Kelland, CEO, Planetary Technologies (planetarytech.com) – Planetary Technologies (formerly Planetary Hydrogen) is developing technology to produce hydrogen while removing carbon from the air and restoring ocean chemistry.

Marc D’Entremont, CEO & Founder, Katchi – Katchi focuses on precision fish harvesting. Its first technology is a dynamically controlled net that prevents seabed destruction by trawlers.

Chuck Toombs, CEO & Founder, Oregon Seaweed (oregonseaweed.com) – Oregon Seaweed is on a mission to provide low impact, high nutrient, fresh foods to the world. They believe that healthy, fresh ingredients do not have to come at a cost to the environment. In fact, alternative sources of protein like seaweed can help our world heal.
