Reactor-based ocean alkalinity enhancement
We exploit CO2 from wastewater treatment facilities, mix it with water and limestone. During the reaction, CO2 is consumed and trapped as alkaline solution. Afterwards, the solution is diluted until it is uncritical for the local aquatic system and discharged into river estuaries or oceans.
