Dissolution Kinetics of MgOH2

Calculating the global potential for CO2 removal: MgOH2 dissolution kinetics and uptake efficiencies.

In September of 2022, Básico performed an experiment to study the dissolution kinetics of magnesium hydroxide in a simulated ocean environment. We used specialized facilities at the University of Miami that can create hurricane force wind and waves in a controlled environment. While previous kinetic research had been done in beakers or large pools, this is the most realistic simulation of ocean mixing available. This research was published in the journal Marine Chemistry in 2023. I served as project manager, maintaining the project's schedule, budget and reporting to satisfy the requirements of each partner. This research was performed at the University of Miami to test proof of concept for Planetary with funding from XPRIZE.
