Fighting Climate Change, One Algae Bloom at a Time

Reducing Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide by Harnessing the Power of Algae


Dramatically reduce atmospheric CO2 through the collection of algae

We believe carbon capture, in the form of removing algal blooms from bodies of water, is a promising method for mitigating climate change. By removing these blooms, we can permanently capture the carbon photosynthesized by the algae to prevent that carbon dioxide (CO2) from being released back into the atmosphere when the algae dies and decomposes. Simultaneously, this approach will also improve the health of acquatic ecosystems by removing harmful algae blooms before they can turn into

Dead zones.


The BioCap Advantage

We effectively address two systemic issues simultaneously


Algae are one of the most efficient collectors of CO2. BioCap takes advantage of this naturally occurring process to remove CO2 directly from the atmosphere.

Algal blooms cause dead zones that wreak havoc on marine and freshwater ecosystems. BioCap removes this algae, mitigating the harmful effects of blooms.

The BioCap Solution

Pioneering Carbon Sequestration Techniques

Two major problems facing our planet today are climate change and algal blooms. Climate change drives warming global temperatures and intensified extreme events such as wildfires and hurricanes. Algal blooms cause toxic conditions in aquatic environments that lead to dead zones which substantially harm the ecosystems. BioCap is addressing both problems at the same time by collecting the algae in dead zones. Collecting this algae prevents the detrimental effects of algal blooms while simultaneously sequestering the CO2 captured by the algae. Without the removal of this algae, the CO2 it consumed would be re-emitted to the atmosphere when they die at the end of a bloom season.


Using algae for a higher purpose

Algae, a diverse group of aquatic organisms, can be used to create a wide range of products. One of the most common uses of algae is as a source of food and nutrition, with many species being used in the production of health supplements and functional foods. Algae can also be used to produce longer-lasting products such as bioplastics, inks, and cement. BioCap is excited to partner with companies producing these types of products.
