By Climate Cleanup Foundation Second Global Olivine Working Webinar

Global Enhanced Weathering Webinar run by Climate Cleanup

Climate Cleanup Foundation is one of the existing partners of greenSand. They involve people ready to reverse climate change by drawing down CO2 with natural climate solutions and introducing the new nature economy.

Climate Cleanup organized this webinar which is an informal bespoke scientific and entrepreneurial gathering of professionals working on enhanced weathering of olivine and other minerals as a scalable climate solution. The event program covers a wide range of speakers from Tasmania, Germany, the UK, the Netherlands, Canada etc. They prepared presentations on a wide topic of olivine mineralization including mine tailings, marine and terrestrial mineralization. Hence, the webinar has the following goal: to have a discussion and get the awareness of the various research topics concerning the powerful stone. Eventually, the intention is to turn this discussion into a business case.

18 researchers in total presented their discoveries. Please feel free to download the presentations which are interesting for you below.

Help to compensate the footprint of the congress with greenSand CO2 removal certificates


Thank you for your participation in the second global Olivine conference and for your compensation efforts to make this a CO2-neutral event. This certificate verifies and guarantees the following:

  • CO2 will be sequestered by the application of Olivine Sand Infill on sport fields

  • The removal of 80kg CO2 in total, of which 68% will be sequestered within 100 years

  • Your donation allows children to exercise on CO2-removing sport fields


  • You can find your carbon removal location on the greenSand World map and watch your efforts come to life!
