This article defines a novel term (that is hopefully sensibly chosen). The term is introduced to make a concept more concrete and understand its interrelationship with other topics related to atomically precise manufacturing. For details go to the page: Neologism.

A carbon dioxide collector buoy is a swimming device that is able to remove the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide form the atmosphere and is able to autonomously navigate from its home haven to its operating area and backwards.

A carbon dioxide collector buoy is a member of the more general class of carbon dioxide collector units which all are members of the even more general class of (partially malicious) mobile carbon dioxide collector balloons.


  • It spreads a solar cell foil carpet on the water surface to receive the necessary energy.
  • It filters the large amounts of air (e.g. with medium movers) and uses water to create acetylene and oxygen.
  • Acetylene is the resource molecule of main interest for the mechanosynthesis of carbon structures because of its low hydrogen content.

The solar carpet needs to be semitransparent or sparrse to leave enough light for marine life. It mus also be designed to prevent entanglement of bigger marine amimals.
