Solutions to climate change will come in sorts of shapes and sizes

This article is from the higher-tech side of carbon sequestration solutions and features a process of storing carbon by cooling and pressurizing CO2 and then injecting it with water deep into the earth’s crust where it will react with silicates to form magnesium and calcium carbonates. These are minerals (rocks) that permanently store carbon deep […]

Innovation everywhere, this time under really thick ice

Powdered rock that can capture carbon when spread on soils as been found in quantities that could fertilize every inch of agricultural land on the planet. There would be a fair bit of work to do before this solution lands on the ground in a big way. The article is missing clues about the rock […]

Carbon capture in real-time

Our latest R & D partnership with Yale and Trent University is hitting the ground running. Last week wollastonite was spread on 10 acres of soybean fields at 3 mt/acre, with a 2.5-acre kept as a control plot. Then scientific equipment was set up to collect soil water for analysis and measure soil moisture, nutrient […]

Grower Profile – Cookstown Greens

This week we caught up with Cookstown Greens. They have been using wollastonite on their beets for two years and are looking to apply it across the whole farm next season. Simon explained the beets struggled with leaf spot that wouldn’t go away until they applied 1200 lbs/acre of wollastonite mixed with compost. Cookstown Greens […]

A match made for the greenhouse

Seedlings are watching the environment and making calculated guesses about how to maximize their reproductive potential. If the environment is extreme and nutrients are lacking, seedlings are setting themselves up for a harsher life with less yield to ensure survival. The power of calcium + silicon in wollastonite has something to offer every stress presented […]
