"Big changes need big ideas and these can come from anywhere — even the lush
farmland of West Carleton.
Devinder Sarai is working on one such big idea: his goal is to combat the
climate crisis that is threatening our planet.
Sarai’s big idea is called Cequest. In essence, the recent graduate from West
Carleton Secondary School wants to build a technology that uses seawater to
capture carbon dioxide from the air and ocean; turn it into a mineralized
bicarbonate; and sink it back into the oceans where it will be sequestered.
The process has the added benefit of adding alkalinity to the oceans to balance
out the acidity that poses a risk to our blue planet. Sarai’s even got a
fundraising campaign underway to raise enough money to compete for Elon Musk
foundation’s XPrize for Carbon Renewal."
