'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

The projet in details

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).

The team

Scientific Committee opinion

Nous sommes sur une innovation au très fort potentiel de captation du CO2 et d'une relative simplicité de mise en œuvre. L’analyse de cycle de vie confirme que l’olivine peut absorber bien plus de CO2 (à terme) que ce qui a été émis pour son transport même sur des milliers de kilomètres. La question de la temporalité est ici importante et la cinétique d’impact sur des dizaines d’années fait de ce projet une solution à moyen-long terme. La question de l'approvisionnement massif en olivine est soulevée mais les atouts énergétiques liés à l’utilisation de l’énergie naturelle des vagues et la faible transformation des matériaux rendent l’équation pertinente. Il est noté que la passivation des grains d’olivine fonctionne mieux si l’olivine n’est pas pure mais qu'elle est disposée en péridotite avec sa diversité minérale, c’est à dire sans tri des grains (cela permet d’éviter le problème de précipitation de la silice). Enfin, même si la réaction permet de désacidifier l’océan (chose positive pour les écosystèmes marins), le passage par des essais en mésocosme / petite échelle contrôlée pour valider de l’absence d’impact négatif sur l’écosystème apparaît indispensable.

The assessors

Time for the Planet® relies on its community's collective intelligence, science, and agile methods to select the innovations with the greatest potential to reduce greenhouse gases.
