But it's still a Greenhouse gas like fossil fuels, so how much of a "green" advantage is it?

Any carbon dioxide extracted from ocean waters is carbon neutral since CO2 is continuously being absorbed by the oceans from the Earth's atmosphere.

The Earth's oceans CO2 continent is increasing, however, due to the absorption of CO2 from fossil fuels which is also increasing the acidity of the oceans.

Also, increasing ocean temperatures due to global warming decrease the ocean's ability to absorb gases from the atmosphere including CO2.

Yes it is important for our ships and aircrafts to convert fuel from seawater.It could be the new source for the shipping industry.Read that recently one of the major country United states successfully developed a technology, which converts seawater into a fuel.The name Seawater fuel: powering the next-generation of shipsgiven for this technology is "Game changer".Which is a solution for the ship industry fuel problems.
