Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emission has become a significant problem over the past decades. It amounts to 80% of the greenhouse gases emitted and thus contributes to climate changes which will have serious consequences for our envoirement. At the Sustainable Innovation Forum in Paris last year, it was mentioned that carbon dioxide has to be globally neutral by 2050.
Through research conducted with KU Leuven, Green Minerals go to know that olivine mineral reacts with CO2 where carbon dioxide is removed. The reaction of olivine and CO2 gives other products, which, if successful, can prevent deforestation, as well as save costs of production.
