Gaia Engineering[1]

Gaia Engineering is a profitable solution for global warming and waste problems with no legacies for future generations.

Gaia Engineering is tececology comprising a combination of new technologies including

A carbon capture process chosen from:


Gaia engineering profitably geomimics past planetary geological processes and adopted on a large scale will economically:

Gaia Engineering is a tececology that works like a giant ecological pump and will reverse global moleconomic flows.

Inputs include

Outputs include

Gaia Engineering starts with a front end process such as the Greensols process which uses carbon dioxide from for example power stations and waste acid to extract magnesium carbonate from seawater or suitable brines which can turned into aggregates or cast as panels, blocks or other building components.
As there is 1.29 grams of magnesium in every litre of seawater and more in brines there is enough of it to last over a billion years at current needs for sequestration. With natural replenishment the resource will last indefinitely.

Most of the calcium and magnesium carbonates produced will be used as aggregates all of which will be bound together by TecEco Eco-Cement. Some carbonate must therefore be calcined in the TecEco Tec-Kiln which removes and captures the gas for recycling in the process and produces magnesium oxide the main ingredient of TecEco Tec, Eco and Enviro-Cements and input for the Tec-Carb Reactor hydroxide-carbonate CO2 capture process.

The Eco-Cements produced set by absorbing atmospheric CO2 and can also bind other wastes.

We want governments to using the power of law to force people to use man made carbonate to build with to solve what is the greatest problem facing civilisation

[1] After reading some of James Lovelock's books John Harrison realised that CarbonSafe as it was then called was not just about carbon sequestration, it touched on many sustainability issues and a name embracing the inter connectivity of processes and problems on the planet would be more appropriate. John therefore chose the name Gaia Engineering as a tribute to James Lovelock. Gaia, gaea or ge was the greek goddess of the earth and mother of Cronus and the Titans in ancient mythology. The word engineering is harder to attach meaning to. We prefer a combination of the definition " turning ideas into reality" and "the discipline dealing with the art or science of applying scientific knowledge to practical problems"
