Notable examples include the use of autonomous drones for mapping underground spaces, and the conversion of disused mines into renewable energy hubs.

As 10 billion tons of renewable mineral deposits are generated on the ocean floor annually, this gap is a major opportunity for investment. Krypton Ocean Group, based in Tortola, has designed a submersive vehicle that collects polymetallic nodules located 6,000 meters below sea-level. The project was part of their…
