Singapore to Expand Pilot Project to Boost Ocean’s CO2 Absorption Capacity

Singapore plans to expand its pilot project using electricity to extract CO2 from seawater to enhance the ocean’s carbon absorption capacity. Led by the Public Utilities Board (PUB), the project currently extracts 100kg of CO2 daily and aims to build a demonstration plant with a 10-ton capacity. Singapore seeks to reduce carbon emissions and achieve net-zero by 2050. However, experts warn about potential ecological impacts and emphasize the need for research to assess risks. The project offers commercial opportunities through carbon credits and hydrogen production. More funding is urgently required for CO2 removal research.
