Fearless Fund harnesses our ocean’s tremendous potential to produce energy and sustainable products while pioneering the removal of carbon dioxide (CDR). The Fearless team assists the health of our systems while producing economically viable and sustainable biomass in the ocean. Biomass grown in the ocean saves costly inputs of land-based agriculture. The US DOE ARPA-E funds the Fearless Fund-led team of US National Labs, marine engineers and universities testing an initiative to harvest floating macroalgae for renewable fuel, CO2 removal and the Blue Economy. Fearless Fund pioneers the scale-up of ocean-based plant production as an alternative energy source and an important contribution to a more sustainable economy. The process reduces excess nutrient runoff, therefore benefitting the health of various marine ecosystems.
