Long Future sustainability,
clean technology & awesome ideas.

Welcome to the SEA O2 website.

My name is Guy Lane, I am a sustainability entrepreneur, advisor and novelist. I believe that I have lived a future-life in which the planet was fine because in the early 21st Century the humans 'got a Moogh on' and became sustainable. In this present life I search for the early stages of these sustainable technologies and ideas and I share them on the the SEA O2 website.

This many people on Earth, right now. See how the number keeps going up...

BFS Blue Petroleum
If CO2 is the result of burning or the oxidation of hydrocarbons and the hydrocarbons were formed at the base with organic matter, mostly plants, what was this vegetable matter or organic carbon formed from? The answer was simple: from solar energy, CO2 and H2O (no plant can live without CO2 and without CO2 life as we know it would not exist). So why not reverse this redox cycle by using the CO2 resulting from combustion to create a reduction process and recover its carbon to convert it into oil?

The BioForming platform expands the utility of the APR process by combining APR with catalysts and reactor systems similar to those found in standard petroleum oil refineries and petrochemical complexes.


Sustainable Green Technologies


Green algae are low maintenance, easy to grow and very abundant aqueous life forms that use sun light energy to perform photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is a biological process which produces biomass  (sugars or oils), oxygen and the high-energy molecule ATP (adenosine triphosphate) from carbon dioxide (CO2) and water. All biomass, whether it is sugars or oils, is convertible into bio-fuels, most commonly bio-ethanol and bio-diesel.
