Professor Gaurav Sant, holding a joint appointment in the civil and environmental engineering and materials science and engineering departments at the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering, was featured in several leading news outlets recently.

From the Forbes article, “An LA Startup Aims to Turn The Oceans Into CO2 Sponge And ‘Green’ Hydrogen Machine”: “We need to find a balance between doing what is necessary to address the climate circumstance that surrounds us but at the same time being responsible that we do no harm,” Sant said.

From the Los Angeles Times article, “Could removing carbon from the ocean be a climate change solution?”: “The oceans are the world’s largest sink of carbon dioxide emissions,” Sant said. “The ability to couple an engineering intervention with such an incredibly large natural system is one of the only ways we’re going to be able to tackle a problem this large, in terms of size and scale.”
