Welcome to our April Newsletter!

Great to have you on board our mission to sequester gigatons of CO₂ with natural

rock powder! 💚🪨

Launching our partnership with Carbonx by spreading 8.000 tonnes of rock powder

“We are excited to partner with InPlanet and have been impressed by their high-quality science-based approach as well as the co-benefits for farmers by advancing the ERW field in the tropics.”  

Mevina Caviezel, Carbonx

It is with great pleasure that we announce the establishment of a long-term partnership agreement with Carbonx, an aggregator of corporate demand for high-permanence CDR solutions. Through this collaboration, we aim to empower large corporations to permanently eliminate their historical carbon emissions by leveraging Enhanced Rock Weathering technology.

To signify the beginning of our joint efforts, we will remove 1,000 metric tons of CO₂ over the next 5 years for one of Carbonx’s clients. This marks another significant milestone in our mission to combat climate change, and we look forward to making a substantial impact through our continued partnership.

Gathering unique weathering data in the tropics

Currently, our science team is conducting dedicated field research to advance the InPlanet MRV. Most of their work is focused on installing first-of-their-kind Field Monitoring Stations to gather unique weathering data on different combinations of rock powder, soil, and crop. The field experiments have already brought some very interesting results, and are conducted in close collaboration with our scientific advisors David Manning (University of Newcastle), Suzi Theodoro (University of Brasilia), and Antonio Azevedo (University of São Paulo/ESALQ).

Enhanced Rock Weathering Nerd Alert

ERW nerd alert inplanet Newsletter

This month’s nerd alert includes a sequence of three articles. It started with a UK-based field experiment by Buckingham et al (2022), which methodology was then criticized by West et al. (2023) and to which the initial authors replied again. Happy reading!

Soil core study indicates limited CO2 removal by enhanced weathering in dry croplands in the UK
