We use ecosystem-friendly technologies to mitigate the effects of global warming. Our materials can slow Arctic melt by increasing the reflectivity and reducing the melt rate of arctic ice.
Our techniques have been developed through decades of engineering expertise and years of field research. We are an advance-stage non-profit research startup—we need your support to refine our deployment techniques. Please spread the word—like us on Facebook and if you can, donate.
BUYING TIME FOR GREEN
"The cost of adaptation to sea level rise is estimated in the billions of dollars per year for many coastal cities; It could cost trillions after 2050"
Scientists alarmed by rapidly shrinking Arctic ice cap
"Some climate scientists are now warning that an ice-free summer Arctic Ocean could appear within a few years—more than a decade sooner than existing climate models have predicted"
Ice911's efforts to artificially boost polar ice formation (ship and crew not included).
"The data from a small-scale experiment show that water with the [Ice 911] additive freezes 1.45 times faster, lasts 1.77 times longer in sun and has a higher albedo than the control"
Ice911 ran its first Indiegogo campaign to get
Ice911 to the Arctic. Thanks for your help - you made a difference!
Ice911 was a 2014 SSV Finalist
Ice911 Research participated as a Finalist in
Sustainable Silicon Valley's *amazing* SSV
WEST Summit WEST Summit's accelerator
program. Fantastic event.
Ice911 at the Cleantech Open
Ice911 participated as a 2013 SemiFinalist Alum at
the2014 Cleantech Open Global Forum. Terrific program.
Taking Ice911 to the Classroom
Because education about climate change is critically
important, Dr. Field once again taught "Engineering and Climate Change" at Stanford in the Fall Quarter. The lectures were taped by Stanford's Center for Professional Development (SCPD) and can now be found on YouTube.
Alaska Field Testing Upcoming
Dr. Field and Mr. Chetty made an initial reconnaissance trips to the
Arctic (Barrow, Fairbanksand Anchorage), gathered cost estimates for the logistics for upcoming initial Arctic
small-scale testing, and met with many wonderful people who shared tales of how
the melting ice affects their livelihoods and communities. Ice911 is working with Umiaq on permitting and continue the crucial
information-gathering to place small-scale tests this season.
Dr. Field has made several presentations to NASA in 2014, and we look forward to increased involvement this year.
