NSPI is the primary electric utility in Nova Scotia. Their Tufts Cove Generating Station is our outfall partner for our Halifax project.
Located in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Dalhousie University is widely recognised as a global leader in ocean biogeochemistry research. The university’s researchers are collaborating with Planetary to provide independent analysis and development of methods for modelling, monitoring, reporting and verifying the outcomes of ocean alkalinity enhancement.
Scientific and Technological Collaborators
Isometric is a leading carbon removal registry. They help Planetary to verify our carbon removals and issue salable carbon credits and have contributed to the development of our MRV protocol.
DOT develops some of the first-rate sensor and sampling technologies that Planetary uses for ocean measuring, including an alkalinity sensor used in our safety monitoring.
Garrison Minerals is an American company that serves as Planetary’s primary supplier of alkalinity. They specialize in producing high-quality magnesium products and serve customers in the food, pharmaceutical, and environmental sectors, including supplying wastewater treatment plants.
SGS Canada is a leading independent lab that operates nation-wide. They test each batch of our alkalinity for purity and safety before we ship any materials to a project site.
Pro Oceanus develops and supplies innovative sensors for monitoring aquatic processes. Their technology helps Planetary measure dissolved gas content in our projects to ensure safe and effective removals.
Enginuity Inc is a Design Engineering Problem-solving engine that is helping with the systems engineering, design and build of Planetary’s alkalinity dosing system.
PML Applications, a charitable arm of the Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) is dedicated to developing and applying innovative marine science to improve our oceans.
The National Oceanography Centre (NOC), conducts world leading marine scientific research and ocean measurement technology innovation and operates Europe’s largest fleet of autonomous and robotic vehicles.
Leading global commerce company Shopify was Planetary’s first customer. With Shopify’s Sustainability Fund, the company supports climate entrepreneurs developing breakthrough carbon removal technologies across a breadth of approaches including ocean alkalinity enhancement.
Frontier is an advance market commitment to buy an initial $1B of permanent carbon removal between 2022 and 2030. It is funded by Stripe, Alphabet, Shopify, Meta, McKinsey, and tens of thousands of businesses using Stripe Climate. Frontier’s goal is to accelerate the development of carbon removal technologies by guaranteeing future demand for them. In practice, its team of technical and commercial experts facilitates purchases from high-potential carbon removal companies like Planetary on behalf of buyers.
Stripe is powers online payment processing and commerce solutions for internet businesses. Stripe is a founding member of the Frontier Climate Change Fund, which facilitated their purchase of carbon credits from Planetary.
The XPRIZE for Carbon Removal is the largest competition in the carbon removal space. 1,133 teams participated in the initial round of the competition, and the final award will be granted to the solution which most promisingly demonstrates a method to remove and store CO2 permanently, benignly, and in a scalable way from the atmosphere or the ocean. Planetary is proud to be one of 15 projects granted the Milestone Award.
The Carbon Business Council, a member-driven and tech-neutral trade association of companies unified to restore the climate, is the preeminent industry voice for carbon management innovators. It is a nonprofit coalition that represents more than 100 companies, including Planetary, and assists in driving community awareness, policy development, and advocacy work.
