Our technology allows the permanent storage of carbon dioxide in sea water through a natural compound called calcium bicarbonate
Features of the
All the reasons why our solution makes the difference
Technology covered by international PCT patent pending applications
Modular, programmable technology for gigaton storage
Uses a natural process that is only accelerated
Counteracts acidification of the seas locally, keeping the pH stable
Sooner certified by a third party via MRV according to ISO 14064-2
Stable between 10,000 and 100,000 years, no long-term monitoring needed
The main stages in the creation and development of Limenet
The idea - Giovanni Cappello begins to study how to remove CO₂ from gasification plants
Desarc Maresanus - Giovanni Cappello, together with Stefano Caserini, Mario Grosso and Simona Masina, founded the Desarc Maresanus research group, thanks to the collaboration with the Politecnico di Milano and the CMCC funded by Amundi. The group has the objective of scientific research on innovative solutions regarding the storage of CO₂ through the sea.
TRL1-4 - Publication of the first scientific articles, other patent filing, realization of the first prototypes with which we validated the solution and proved to be able to remove grams and then kilograms of CO₂ through calcium bicarbonates.
TRL 5-6 - Development and improvement of the prototype with industrialization of technology. Construction of the first plant in La Spezia (Italy) able to remove tens of tons of CO₂/year.
TRL 7 - Construction of the first production plant with storage capacity of hundreds of tons of CO₂/year. MRV certification of negative emissions by a third party using blockchain technology. Further scientific studies on Limenet technology.
TRL 8 - Construction of the first production plant on an industrial scale capable of storing about 4 thousand tons of CO₂/year.
TRL 9 - Construction of the first commercial plant capable of storing about 100 thousand tons of CO₂/year. Further scale-up of technology towards mega-ton and giga-ton storage.
Mega-ton: Scale-up of Limenet technology on this dimensional scale.
Multi mega-ton: Scale-up of Limenet technology on this dimensional scale.
Giga-ton: Scale-up of Limenet technology on this dimensional scale.
