'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 :
Submitted to the Scientific Committee : After the evaluations made by our volunteer assessors, innovations with the strongest impact potential are submitted to the Scientific Committee. The managing directors are responsible for the choice.
The most scalable all-natural solution to remove excess CO2 while restoring the ocean.
Restores ocean ecosystems including seafood. Creates jobs. Reduces climate inequality.
By growing more phytoplankton that naturally absorbs excess CO2 and storing it in the middle and deep ocean.
Corporations needing to reduce CO2 footprint. Governments needing to meet Paris Climate commitments.
Wave-powered upwelling pumps operate without intervention, deliver nutrients to sunlit surface and grow phytoplankton. Oceans are vast, no limitation.
