'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
1 evaluation

Submitted for assessment : After checking that an innovation is within the scope of the 20 issues Time for the Planet® targets and that it has reached a sufficient maturity, the innovation is being assessed.

Detailed project

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

What is the issue addressed?

Restores ocean ecosystems including seafood. Creates jobs. Reduces climate inequality.

How is the problem solved?

By growing more phytoplankton that naturally absorbs excess CO2 and storing it in the middle and deep ocean.

What is the customer target?

Corporations needing to reduce CO2 footprint. Governments needing to meet Paris Climate commitments.

How is this solution different?

Wave-powered upwelling pumps operate without intervention, deliver nutrients to sunlit surface and grow phytoplankton. Oceans are vast, no limitation.
