The Geological Museum Hofland presents an exposition dedicated to  the relationship of CO2 and Olivine. The educational value of this museum is very high. The museum can be visited at 51 Hilversumseweg 1251 EW in Laren (NH) tel 035-5382520. email: info@geologischemuseumhofland.nl  web: www.geologischemuseumhofland.nl In Dutch: Minitentoonstelling: CO2 en Olivijn In...

Interview Jos Vink Olivine weathering in Deltares field trials Effect of natural environmental conditions on mineral dissolution and the potential toxicity of nickel. Summary One of the most common silicate minerals on earth is olivine, which has been a natural regulator for atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations for millions of...

For more information, program and registration go to https://climatecleanup.org/ew-conference-2022/ The conference will close with rewarding (for the...

To our great regret Olaf Schuiling died this month at the age 89 years. Olaf was co-founder of the Olivine Foundation. We missed him for a couple of years as boardmember and even more as a geochemical  pioneer in developing and promoting the possibilities of enhanced weathering of...

Take a look at the world's third global olivine conference The first conference was in 2012, the second was organized in 2020 by Climate Cleanup. And the third in May 2021. Climate Cleanup's 1500 Club Members and olivine experts Pol Knops, Patricia Grasse and Ingrid...

Enhanced Weathering is a carbon capture process that could remove over 2bn tons of CO2 each year (for comparison, the U.S. emitted 5.3bn in 2018), explains Benjamin Houlton at the University of California. Silicate minerals exposed to the weather have been sequestering atmospheric carbon and turning it into rock...

  Abstract: Nature volume 583 Enhanced silicate rock weathering (ERW), deployable with croplands, has potential use for atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) removal (CDR), which is now necessary to mitigate anthropogenic climate change. ERW also has possible co-benefits for improved food and soil security, and reduced ocean acidification. Here we...
