Title (EN) MARINE CARBON SEQUESTRATION
(FR) AMÉLIORATIONS DE LA SÉQUESTRATION DU CARBONE OU S'Y RAPPORTANT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)There is provided a marine-based carbon sequestration device (1) comprising: a light collector (2); a light conduit (3) for transferring light from the collector (2) to a deeper marine level; and means for emitting light from the conduit at a deeper marine level whereby to provide a light zone (80) for promoting organic growth. In use, resulting organic material sinks to greater depths and becomes incorporated into seabed sediment.
(FR)Cette invention concerne un dispositif de séquestration du carbone en milieu marin (1) comprenant : un collecteur de lumière (2); un conduit de lumière (3) pour transférer la lumière provenant du collecteur (2) vers un niveau marin plus profond; et un moyen pour émettre la lumière à partir du conduit à un niveau marin plus profond de façon à créer une zone de lumière (80) favorisant la croissance organique. En utilisation, le matériau organique obtenu coule à de plus grandes profondeurs et s'incorpore aux sédiments des fonds marins.
