This Robot Will Collect Seaweed to Help Absorb Carbon Into the Ocean Floor

Seaweed Generation, a robotics company, is creating manta ray-shaped robots called AlgaRay, designed to combat the growing issue of sargassum seaweed washing up on Mexican beaches. This seaweed absorbs substantial amounts of CO2, and the robots collect it and deposit it in deep ocean waters, where it cannot photosynthesize and eventually dies, trapping the carbon on the seafloor. Seaweed Generation's vision includes deploying a fleet of these robots to manage sargassum in the seas, potentially removing billions of tons of carbon dioxide annually.
