Rewind Announces New Protocol For Marine Carbon Dioxide Removal

Rewind Announces New Protocol For Marine Carbon Dioxide Removal - Carbon Herald

Tel Aviv-based biomass carbon removal and storage (BiCRS) company Rewind has unveiled its new Marine Terrestrial Biomass Storage (MTBS) Framework Protocol, the first of its kind, expanding upon and enhancing current ecological safety and effectiveness standards.

This cutting-edge protocol represents a major leap in Marine Carbon Dioxide Removal (mCDR), leveraging the carbon dioxide (CO2) absorption capabilities of plants and the unique characteristics of anoxic marine environments to sequester biomass carbon for millennia, Rewind said Thursday in a press release.

The MTBS Protocol details the scientific foundation, potential risks, comprehensive carbon accounting principles, and stringent guidelines for sustainable, transparent implementation.

The framework capitalizes on the carbon retention potential of anoxic marine environments, such as the Black Sea, where low oxygen levels and high sulfide toxicity enable long-term carbon storage.

Developed in partnership with over 20 leading organizations in environmental science, oceanography, marine biogeochemistry, and carbon removal, the MTBS Framework adheres to the ISO Standard 14064-2.

It has undergone extensive review by global auditors and has been validated by leading consultancy Deloitte to ensure the utmost scientific integrity, transparency, and impact.

Rewind is inviting public consultation on the MTBS Framework until June 31, encouraging feedback from stakeholders across all sectors to refine the protocol continuously.

“Rewind is a science-led company dedicated to sustainable and pragmatic solutions to address the climate crisis,” CEO Ram Amar said.

The company is eager to collaborate with the global ocean sciences community, industry experts, and environmental leaders to enhance its MTBS Protocol, contributing to ocean, climate, and human health, the chief executive added.
