Abstract

There is provided a marine-based carbon sequestration device (1) comprising: a light collector (2); a light conduit (3) for transferring light from the collector (2) to a deeper marine level; and means for emitting light from the conduit at a deeper marine level whereby to provide a light zone (80) for promoting organic growth. In use, resulting organic material sinks to greater depths and becomes incorporated into seabed sediment.
