Campaign Story

Help turn the tide on climate change.

To avoid the worst effects of climate change, we need to remove massive quantities of harmful carbon dioxide from the atmosphere – and soon.

At Project Vesta, we’re doing just that. We’re making green sand beaches which use natural wave energy to take carbon dioxide out of the air. We accelerate a natural process which has been capturing carbon dioxide in rocks for billions of years. There’s 30 years of scientific research showing that this works.

We’re making our cheap, permanent carbon dioxide removal process freely available so it can be used anywhere in the world.

Help fund our pilot sites

We’re a non-profit, raising $1.5M to fund two pilot sites where we’ll take this technology out of the lab and onto the beach. One study is designed to establish the safety of the technique, and the second measures how quickly we remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.


Roadmap to Global Deployment

These two studies form a key part of our roadmap, which is designed not only to prove that the process works, but also to provide an open-source set of blueprints which will be available to all. This will mean this cheap, permanent method for carbon removal can be rolled out quickly all over the world.


Where your money goes

Your donation will fund materials, equipment, and research staff to make the pilot projects happen.

Now is the time to act

We need your help. Humanity needs your help. The planet needs your help. Your donation goes directly into the fight against climate change.

Together, we can do this.
