How we do it?
We increase the surface of active mineralization of antigorite serpentinite by crushing the rock to achieve optimal granulation parameters.
We are developing a simple, low-cost, verifiable and scalable technology based on thermoactivation and organic salts to accelerate the natural mineralization process of serpentinite.
We refine production methods of mineral fertilizers based on serpentinite to improve its performance in agricultural applications – it can work for plants and remove carbon at the same time.
We develop effective and reliable methods for measuring, verifying and reporting (MRV) carbon removal.
We are working on using serpentinite in chimney filters capturing carbon at the source of emissions.
Serpentinite will be used on large scale, primarily in agriculture. We have obtained a permission from the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development to use antigorite serpentinite as a mineral fertilizer. We confirmed its positive impact on corn, potatoes, wheat, oats and barley crops. Due to high pH level, fertilizers based on antigorite serpentinite are a recommended deacidification solution for acidic soils.
The use of serpentinite in chimney filters can translate to a significant reduction of carbon emissions by industrial plants.
