Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is the process through which great quantities of carbon are captured and stored. Among the various enabler for CO2 absorption, a special role is played by two types of algae present in large amounts in the Venetian lagoon: macroalgae, which are visible to the naked eye, and phytoplankton.

These underwater organisms capture CO2 through photosynthesis. When winter comes, they die and settle carbon in the muddy seabed, acting as a natural carbon dioxide storage system. Therefore, the sea captures large amounts of atmospheric CO2 in a permanent and natural way without any mechanical intervention. The health of the environment is guaranteed through maintenance work carried out regularly in the Po valley. In the absence of such interventions, even for a few years, phenomena such as clogging and anoxia are likely to occur. This would lead to the loss of the valley’s own environmental characteristics, as well as the loss of a variety of living species.

These safeguarding activities carried out by our Seapartner on the marine environment contribute to an increase in biodiversity and boost the absorption of CO2 from the atmosphere.

Certification of Carbon Credits

Carbon credits are of the voluntary type (VER-VCS), guaranteed according to the reference practice UNI PDR 99:2020 and benefit from the βNeutral certification issued by Bios srl, a leading certification entity in the sector. The certification process was followed by D&D Consulting (
