Project Vesta Structure
Our overriding goal is to get as much olivine weathering on beaches as possible. This means bringing together the financial resources, scientific knowledge, high-energy beaches, and olivine reserves to maximize the carbon removed from the atmosphere.
We plan to make our organization as lean as possible so that the overwhelming majority of funds go to olivine mining, milling, and distribution onto beaches. Project Vesta is operating as a non-profit with a goal of not just spreading awareness for the potential of olivine to remove CO2 from the atmosphere, but to actually actively spread olivine on beaches to directly remove that carbon dioxide.
We will explore all viable options to maximize impact and CO2 removal, which could include potential future revenue streams such as selling carbon credits, high pH olivine mineral water, and olivine directly to farmers and others for soil enrichment. All funds will always be kept within the organization in a publicly beneficial, not-for-profit manner, to fulfill our mission of lowering the price of olivine and thereby increasing the volume of olivine we can afford to place on beaches.
