Help fund the pilot projects needed to take coastal enhanced weathering from the lab to the beach. Your contribution will make Project Vesta’s first pilot studies a reality, allowing us to demonstrate to the world the advantages and viability of the process. Our open-source models will advance the field and facilitate future deployments on much larger scales.
To avoid the worst effects of climate change, we need to remove massive quantities of harmful carbon dioxide from the atmosphere – and soon.
At Project Vesta, we’re doing just that. We’re making green sand beaches which use natural wave energy to take carbon dioxide out of the air. We accelerate a natural process which has been capturing carbon dioxide in rocks for billions of years. There’s 30 years of scientific research showing that this works.
We’re making our cheap, permanent carbon dioxide removal process freely available so it can be used anywhere in the world.
We’re a non-profit, raising $1.5M to fund two pilot sites where we’ll take this technology out of the lab and onto the beach. One study is designed to demonstrate the effects of adding olivine to a new environment, which allows us to establish the safety profile of the technique, and the second is designed to measure and help us optimize how quickly we remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
We’re a non-profit, raising $1.5M to fund two pilot sites where we’ll take this technology out of the lab and onto the beach. One study is designed to demonstrate and establish the safety of the technique, and the second type of experiments will measure how quickly we remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere in varying conditions. These two processes are the cornerstones that the will allow us to create a model that will enable us to quantify the carbon dioxide removal rate of the process.
These two studies form a key part of our roadmap, which is designed not only to prove that the process works, but also to create an open-source Coastal Enhanced Weathering Integrated Assessment Model (CEWIAM), which is will enable the deployment of additional projects and be available to all. This will mean this cheap, permanent method for carbon removal can be rolled out all over the world.
Your donation will fund materials, equipment, and research staff to make the pilot projects happen.
We need your help. Humanity needs your help. The planet needs your help. Your donation goes directly into the fight against climate change.
