UK Enhanced Rock Weathering GGR Demonstrator
Enhanced rock weathering (ERW): investigating the utility of crushed silicate rock on farmland to remove the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere and improve UK food and soil security.
Crushed rocks on UK farmland could absorb up to 45% of the atmospheric CO2 needed for net zero targets
Adding rock dust to UK agricultural soils could absorb up to 45 per cent of the atmospheric carbon dioxide needed to reach net zero, according to a major new study led by scientists at the University of Sheffield.
