'Time points' are awarded according to the adequacy of the solution with the type of innovations sought by Time for the Planet®. They correspond to the analysis of several factors :

  • impact potential: impact average score > 4 => 0,5 point / if > 4,15 => 1 point.
  • global consistency: all average score of the 6 selection criteria > 2,5 => 1 point.
  • the favourite: % of assessments judge the innovation as a top one to act on a global scale against greenhouse gases > 20% => 1 point
  • the targeting: validation of Time for the Planet<span class="brand">®</span> scope of action higher than 90% => 0,5 point + innovation level of maturity is enough => 0,5 point
  • social acceptability: semantic analysis score of comments > 0 => 0,5 point/ if > 3500 => 1 point

Detailed project

NB: this form is filled entirely by the ones submitting the innovation.

What is the issue addressed?

Massive and fast capture of CO2 to limit its concentration in the atmosphere

How is the problem solved?

The process accelerates the natural carbon-silicate cycle using olivine, a green volcanic rock thanks to the action of waves and currents.

What is the customer target?

Companies via carbon credits. Individuals via the purchase of m2 of beaches or oceans. Also, city councils and governments will play a key role in validating permits and access.

How is this solution different?

The biggest difference is that we accelerate a natural cycle (carbon silicate), and use natural mechanical forces as well (waves and current).
