What are the Carbon emissions of Enhanced Rock Weathering? A comprehensive, transparent, and rigorously conducted LCA is the basis for every high-quality carbon removal technology and its carbon removal credit issuance. We have thus – for the first time ever in a tropical context – conducted a cradle-to-grave LCA for ERW based on regional and primary gathered data. The total emissions created through every operational stage are only 7.36% or (20.14 kg CO2-eq) of the basalt rock powder’s overall CDR potential that we applied in this context. More importantly, the massive reservoirs of usable rock by-products in Brazil combined with the … Read more
