Maximizing the world’s largest carbon sink and reducing ocean acidification.
Planetary Tech’s process adds alkalinity to the ocean to enhance the ocean’s natural ability to capture and store CO₂, which reduces ocean acidification, while creating green hydrogen as a byproduct. As its first purchaser, Shopify purchase is supporting critical R&D and helping fund Planetary Tech’s first pilot facility.
Running Tide grows kelp and sinks it to the bottom of the ocean where the CO₂ is stored for the long term. As its first customer, Shopify is raising awareness for Running Tide’s solution while supporting critical research, and Shopify has expanded its support by signing a letter of intent for future credits, which Running Tide will leverage in conversations with stakeholders.
