Enhanced Atmospheric Methane Oxidation

EAMO shortens the lifespan of methane in the atmosphere. Methane is 28 times more powerful in its warming capacity than Co2, measured over a period of 100 years. Methane oxidises into Co2, this is it’s natural fate. EAMO enhances this process.

EAMO is the only cooling method which serves both methane removal as well as Co2 removal, the categories which help to get to net-zero emissions:

  • Methane Removal is it’s foremost goal.
  • When ISA rains down into the ocean it contributes to ocean fertilization. Compare OIF.

AMR AG is developing technology for EAMO. We think that EAMO is the most efficient cooling method, and at the same time is safe and natural. EAMO has the potential to cool the globe by 0.5 degrees. This estimate refers only to the effect on methane, the effects in form of OIF and MCB must be added.

Advantages of EAMO

EAMO allows cooling the earth by 0.5 degrees. It does not solve the problem completely but it comes close.

EAMO is the only solution which allows GHG removal at a speed and scale so we can possibly stay under 1.5°C by 2050.

EAMO cools the planet in three ways. It removes methane, ozone and CO2 from the atmosphere.

In comparison to all other GHG removal technologies EAMO costs less by a factor of 100-1000 per ton of CO2e removed.

EAMO enhances existing, natural processes. CO2 removal by Direct Air Capture relies on a man-made, artificial process.

Only nature can solve the climate crisis. It is upon us to enhance nature’s self-healing properties so we can avert an overheated planet.
