ROCK SOLID CARBON REMOVAL SOLUTIONS
Everything starts with ambition!
Ambition is crucial for achieving success. The Carbon Neutral Initiative aims to remove 1 Gigaton of CO2 from the atmosphere by 2030 through partnerships with both local partners and multinational corporations. Learn more about our projects or get in touch with us to join our efforts today.
Removal of 10 gigatonnes CO2 from the atmosphere
The climate challenge refers to the ongoing global warming caused by human activity, primarily the burning of fossil fuels. These activities release large amounts of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, trapping heat and causing the planet to warm up.
To avoid severe consequences, scientists have set a target of limiting the warming to no more than 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. However, reducing emissions alone is not enough to achieve this target. We also need to actively remove CO2 from the atmosphere through carbon sequestration methods such as Enhanced Rock weathering. Climate change has far-reaching effects, including food security, human health, and natural ecosystems. It’s a complex issue that requires both reducing emissions and actively removing CO2 from the atmosphere.
Enhanced Rock weathering
Enhanced rock weathering is a proposed technique for removing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere and storing it in a permanent way, as a means of mitigating the greenhouse effect and slowing climate change. The process involves spreading crushed silicate minerals over land surfaces, where they react with CO2 in the air to form stable carbonates. These carbonates can then be stored indefinitely, effectively removing CO2 from the atmosphere. Enhanced rock weathering is seen as a potential low-cost, low-tech option for large-scale CO2 removal.
