Project: Project Vesta

"Project Vesta is a project to remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere and oceans by accelerating the weathering of a type of rock called olivine. When olivine interacts with water and the CO2 dissolved in it, a chemical reaction (called weathering) occurs that creates a bicarbonate solution that marine animals like corals use in their shells. The CO2 remains locked in that form and eventually settles as sediment or turns to limestone rock on the sea floor."
